OH! Monica Lewinsky is clapping in response to backlash after hinting that Beyonce should change the lyrics of her 2013 song, ‘Partition.’ On Twitter, the former White House intern known for having an affair with former President Bill Clinton reached out to Bey after it was reported that she changed the lyrics to the song ‘Heated’.
As we previously reported, Beyoncé changed her lyrics in response to backlash from disability campaigners, who said the song had a ludicrous quality. The lyrics say, “Spazzin’ on a*s, jazz on a*s.” Although in Native African American English (AAVE,) the word “spaz” is often used colloquially to describe “panic” or “crazy”, it is derived from the word “spastic”, which is considered to be demeaning to people with paralysis. stiff brain.
Monica used the spotlight to bring herself into the conversation by tweeting, “Uhmm, while we’re at it… # Partition Beyoncé to remove the Renaissance Lyric After Outrage song: Ableist, Offensive – Variety. “
uhmm, while we’re at it… #Bulkhead

People who didn’t like Monica tried to get Bey to change the lyrics 9 years later and immediately started supporting her. One user asked: “Did you contact Beyonce or her team before the heat hit? I’m curious.” Monica advised, “No, I haven’t. I mentioned it in the first vanity fair article I wrote in 2014… it’s the first public thing I’ve done in 10 years. But you makes an interesting/fair point.”
Another wrote, “Okay, but you’re still just calling for Beyoncé to change her lyrics. Nobody. Obviously, sticks and rocks aren’t the only things that can hurt you. You have a long list of artists and years of music to go through if you stand on this logic. Good luck.”
Do you think Monica waited too late to say something about the lyrics?
