Monica Lewinsky Reacts to Beyonce's 'Lewinsky'd' Lyric
By Jackie Willis
"He Monica Lewinsky'd all on my gown," Beyonce seductively sings in her hit song Partition, but how does the woman behind the provocative lyric feel about being a line in one of Mrs. Carter's songs?
The lyric is, of course, in regards to Lewinsky's affair with President Bill Clinton when he was in office and she was a White House intern. "Thanks, Beyonce, but if we're verbing, I think you meant 'Bill Clinton'd all on my gown,' not 'Monica Lewinsky'd,'" the 40-year-old told Vanity Fair magazine.
Prior to Lewinsky's reaction to the song, Beyonce was already getting some flak from FOX News' Bill O'Reilly for the lyric. During an interview in March with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, he slammed the 32-year-old singer after Simmons referred to her music as art.
"That's art?!" O'Reilly exclaimed. "Beyonce in the back of a limo having sex and referencing Monica Lewinsky, is art?"
What do you think of Partition? Is it too sexually explicit?
