Monica Lewinsky wants Beyoncé to remove a reference to her from one of her old songs.
The former White House intern - who famously had an affair with then-President Bill Clinton,
with the scandal leading to his impeachment in 1998 – suggested the “Crazy in Love” hitmaker should change
the lyrics to her 2013 hit “Partition” after the 40-year-old star pledged to remove an ableist slur from her new song “Heated”.
Tweeting an article from “Varity” about the change to “Heated”, Lewinsky wrote: “uhmm, while we’re at it … #Partition (sic)”
Her representative said: “The word, not used intentionally in a harmful way, will be replaced.”
They have praised her for agreeing to change the lyric.
The organisation said: “Beyoncé has a history of championing inclusivity,
and we’re happy that she’s listened to feedback and agreed to re-record the lyric that many disabled people find offensive.
“We want to thank Beyoncé for listening and look forward to getting on with enjoying the record.”
