Despite being one of the most beloved singers in the music industry, in recent days after releasing her Renaissance album Beyoncé has been slammed more than once for her music. Now, like a ghost of Christmas past, Monica Lewinsky is pleading Beyonce to change the lyrics of a song that was released back in 2013 where she mentions the American personality.

Monica Lewinsky chimed in the conversation by tweeting a Variety post where Beyonce's reps announced that her song 'Heated' was having the lyrics changed after being accused of being ableist. More specifically, it was the word 'spaz' being replaced, Now, the line has been replaced to: “Blastin’ on that ass, blast on that ass.”

“Uhm, while we’re at it… #Partition “ Monica Lewinsky wrote. Partition was included in Beyonce's fifth album studio. The song was co-created by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, Dwane "Key Wane" Weir, Mike Dean, and M.I.A.

Explicitly, Partition includes a lyric that says that a man  "Monica Lewinsky'd all on my gown," referencing the affair between Lewinsky and the former President of The United States Bill Clinton back in 1998. The song reached No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 before receiving a Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.

This is not the first time Monica addresses Beyonce's song. Back in 2014 in an essay published by Vanity Fair "Every day someone mentions me in a tweet or a blog post, and not altogether kindly," Lewinsky wrote for the outlet. "Every day, it seems, my name shows up in an op-ed column or a press clip or two — mentioned in passing in articles on subjects as disparate as millennials, 'Scandal,' and French president François Hollande’s love life."

She then tried to joke about it. "Miley Cyrus references me in her twerking stage act, Eminem raps about me, and Beyoncé's latest hit gives me a shout-out. Thanks, Beyoncé," she wrote, "but if we're verbing, I think you meant 'Bill Clinton'd all on my gown,' not 'Monica Lewinsky'd.'"

Social media users started to call Monica Leniwsky out because of her petition and even slammed her for calling herself a "rap song muse"  on her bio. However, she added that she did it "because learning to laugh about things which hurt or humiliated me is how I survived."

This news about Monica Lewinsky also comes after singer Kelis called her out for sampling one of her songs without permission or even without telling her what she was doing. Days after that, the sample was removed.
