Monica Lewisnky wants Beyoncé to drop her ‘Sheet’ name

Monica Lewinsky reacted to the news that Beyoncé was changing the lyrics of a song on her album Renaissance after it was deemed offensive, suggesting the Grammy winner do the same on her 2013 track “Sheet Music.”

“Uhmm, while we’re at it…” the author tweeted after the news broke on Monday.

On the song “Sheet Music,” Beyoncé alludes to Lewiskny’s affair with former President Bill Clinton and, uh, a sex act. In 2014, the former White House intern opened up about how she’s frequently referenced in pop culture and sarcastically responded to Beyoncé’s song.

“Every day, it seems, my name pops up in an editorial column or press clip or two – mentioned in passing in articles on topics as disparate as millennials, Scandal, and the love life of French President François Hollande. Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé’s latest hit has me screaming. Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re speaking verbally, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton was all over my dress,’ not ‘Monica Lewinsky,'” Lewinsky wrote.

Beyoncé did not respond to Lewinsky’s message. However, the superstar heard from disability activists over the weekend when she was called out for using the word ‘spaz’ on her song ‘Heat’. The word is a pejorative term for spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy. Beyoncé responded via her rep as she faced backlash for using the ability insult.

“The word, not intentionally used in a harmful way, will be replaced,” a spokesperson said.
