(CNN) — Since Beyoncé is editing lyrics, Monica Lewinsky has a request.
Lewinsky, the former White House intern who became embroiled in a sex scandal with then President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, tweeted the news of Beyoncé removing an abelist slur from the song “Heated” on her new album “Renaissance” with a suggestion.READ MORE: Leonardo - 'Episode 101'
“uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition,”Lewinsky tweeted.
“Partition” is a track from the singer’s 2013 self-titled fifth studio album. In the song, Beyoncé sings that a man “Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown.”
The affair between Clinton and then-22-year-old Lewinsky ultimately led to Clinton’s impeachment in 1998 and much discussion about consent and abuse of power.READ MORE: Devils - S2 'Episode 1'
In 2021, Lewinsky told CNN’s Jake Tapper that “what’s really important to remember in today’s world is that we never should have even gotten to a place where consent was a question.”
“So it was wholly inappropriate as the most powerful man, my boss, 49 years old,” she said. “I was 22, literally just out of college. And I think that the power differentials there are something that I couldn’t ever fathom consequences at 22 that I understand obviously so differently at 48.”
This week, Beyoncé agreed to scrub from her track “Heated” a reference which is considered demeaning to people with spastic cerebral palsy after there was a public outcry.
CNN has reached out to reps for the singer for comment about Lewinsky’s request.MORE NEWS: John Travolta Pays Tribute
