Monica Lewinsky: Beyonce "Partition" Lyrics Are Wrong! I'm Not the Verb!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Monica Lewinsky may have a point when she says Beyonce incorrectly (albeit hilariously) made her name into a verb in the lyrics to her explicit song "Partition."

In her upcoming Vanity Fair essay, Lewinsky regrets her affair with Bill Clinton, but that doesn't mean Queen Bey isn't wrong for name-checking Monica.

On the track, Beyonce muses on a memorable limousine tryst, "He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse, he Monica Lewinsky'ed all on my gown."

That's wrong, of course. Monica did not nut on her own blue dress in the Oval Office. As the recipient, not the deliverer, Lewinsky thinks the line should be reworked.

"Thanks, Beyonce," she writes in a memorable VF excerpt, "but if we're verbing, I think you meant 'Bill Clinton'ed all on my gown,' not 'Monica Lewinsky'ed.'"

Grammar lesson learned.

Elsewhere, Lewinsky explains that she's stepping into the spotlight again to "take back my narrative" and "burn the beret and bury the blue dress" at last.

She apologizes for what she calls "a consensual relationship" with the president, and criticizes the Clintons for making her the "scapegoat" for his misdeeds.

No wonder she's upset about being the verb.

Meanwhile, the New York Post says Monica Lewinsky sucks. That's in poor taste, but no doubt made more than a few people chuckle with the wordplay.

It was my understanding that Monica was trying to get her life back on track. She will Never be able to do that as long as she plays editor to everything that continues to be written or said about her. Unless she is able to ignore stories about herself, she will be apologizing and correcting aspects of her life for the rest of her life. I believe that at this point in her life she Needs to stop reading or trying to keep up with all of the gossip that refers to her. I am Not suggesting that she hide, she's been there and done that, what she Needs is a good coping magnet when it comes to the same old/yesterday's News about her life. Get up, and move on to the Next chapters of life after 40!!
