Beyonce is constantly amid a storm ever since she released her seventh solo album ‘Renaissance’ on July 29. The crooner got slammed for using the word ‘spaz’ in her song ‘Heated’ and her team vowed to remove the term but said it was not used in a harmful manner. A day later Monica Lewinsky called out Queen Bey to change a line that mentioned her scandalous affair with Bill Clinton in the 2013 song ‘Partition.'
 
Beyonce's lyrics in the song go like, “Oh me so horny, yeah, he want to f**k/He popped all my buttons, & he ripped my blouse/He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown.” Social media users slammed the former White House intern for dragging Beyonce. For the unversed, former President Bill Clinton admitted to having an affair with Lewinsky while she worked at the White House in 1995 and 1996. The affair and Clinton's impeachment later became known later as the Clinton–Lewinsky scandal.

Monica Lewinsky calls out Beyonce over ‘Partition’ lyrics

Monica Lewinsky, while sharing an article about Beyonce changing the lyrics of the single ‘Heated’, indirectly shared that since the Grammy-winning songstress was changing lyrics, she should also do the same for ‘Partition.' “uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition”, tweeted the 49-year-old TV personality. While replying to a fan who shared a screenshot of her Twitter profile saying “rap song muse,” she replied, “yup… this is how I deal with things that hurt/disappoint- I try to find the humor in it. (i was a beyoncé fan til partition) but this isn’t the first time I’ve talked about this.”
 
Another fan shared a screenshot of Monica Lewinsky’s 2014 article in Vanity Fair where she offered a suggested change to the word. In the article, she reportedly stated, “Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking stage act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé's latest hit gives me a shout-out. Thanks, Beyoncé but if we're verbing, I think you meant 'Bill Clinton'd all on my gown,' not 'Monica Lewinsky'd.'"

Replying to this tweet, Monica Lewinsky claimed, “The article was not accurate. I wrote a first-person essay for the mag, didn’t give an interview, and here’s the excerpt.” Speaking of Beyonce, the R&B songstress has, so far, not reacted to the matter.

‘You did not address the use of your name until a Black woman used it’

Social media users flocked to Twitter over the controversy as one of the users stated, “She isn’t known for the depth of her lyrics.”

Another chimed in, “I wondered how you felt about that specific lyric… and now I know. Interesting how that line can symbolize a moment of empowerment for her and trigger a difficult memory for you. We move so fast through life we often forget real people are involved in the things we say and do.”
 
The next one tweeted, “I feel like y’all can tell Monica Lewinsky that she’s trippin about the Beyonce lyrics without slut shaming her & dismissing the fact that she was preyed on by an older man in a position of power. She’s forcing it but y’all are forcing it too cuz what happened wasn’t her fault.”

Another posted, “Am I crazy? Monica Lewinsky is requesting Beyoncé remove a lyric from her song. Am I crazy or did she do what Beyoncé said she did? We live in a world that would make you think it’s ok to sleep with the married president and gain sympathy for it. Am I crazy or is this odd?”

One user shared, “It’s also interesting that you did not address the use of your name until a Black woman used it. Research shows Eminem used your name in three different songs yet it’s Beyoncé who needs to change her lyrics.”

And, one concluded, “Monica Lewinsky has been consistent in disliking that Beyoncé line and she’s right. And it doesn’t even make sense in the song because it should “He Bill Clinton all over my gown” but it’s easier to punch down on a woman than target a former president who abused his power.”
