Monica Lewinsky Attacks Beyoncé For “Partition” Lyric: “You Meant Bill Clinton’d All On My Gown!”

Beyoncé may have penned some of the biggest hits on the planet, but Monica Lewinsky thinks her songwriting skills could be seriously improved.

In a new essay written in Vanity Fair, the former White House intern of Bill Clinton is quick to diss the 31-year-old “Run The World” singer for the use of her name on the track “Partition.” On the single off her fifth self-titled solo album, Beyoncé raised eyebrows when she cooed, “He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse/ He Monica Lewinski’d all on my gown.”

Well according to Lewinsky, the lyric is grammatically incorrect. “Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d all on my gown,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.’”

The gown in question is the blue dress Lewinsky wore during her scandalous  affair with the president when she was only 22. Now 40, the woman that is used to being just a pop culture punchline is ready to open up about her infamous past. “It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.” She also says: “I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

In the article titled “Shame and Survival,” Lewinsky explains that she may feel regret but she’s done playing the victim. “The buzz in some circles has been that the Clintons must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth,” she says. “[It is time to stop] tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures. I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

Head over to Vanity Fair to read more of Lewinsky’s essay and pick up the issue on newsstands on May 13th. Beyoncé’s camp hasn’t responded but do you think the lyric in question needs correcting?
