After Beyoncé changed a lyric from her new album Renaissance following some backlash regarding ableist language, it seems that Monica Lewinsky would like her to do the same for a song referencing her encounter with Bill Clinton.
Last year, Lewinsky was the subject of a documentary that explored and re-contextualized her relationship with Clinton while working as a White House intern. Lewinsky's story parallels that of Britney Spears to some extent in that both women's darkest moments were treated as punchlines until they were more widely understood years later to be the results of serious power imbalances.
For that reason, certain late night show monologues and song lyrics referencing the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal haven't exactly aged well. And Lewinsky is taking aim at one example in particular in the wake of some unrelated backlash that saw both Beyoncé and Lizzo change their lyrics to remove ableist language.
