In the wise words of Beyoncé, ‘He Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown.’
Jay-Z must be thrilled to get the approval of none other than Monica Lewinsky, former White House intern and President Bill Clinton’s past mistress.
Lewinsky wrote a letter for Vanity Fair, in which she praised various A-listers including Prince Harry, Brad Pitt, and of course, Jay-Z, for being “vulnerable” and “wrestling with male stereotypes.”
When speaking about Jay, the once-Presidential mistress gave kudos to the rapper after he addressed the fact that he cheated on his wife, Queen Bey, on his newest album, 4:44. While other artists may have avoided the topic, Jay chose to address what thousands of people were dying to know, which Monica finds admirable.
Lewinsky continued to write:
“Jay-Z had a choice. Having been called out publicly by his wife in her fierce 2016 album and video, Lemonade, Jay-Z knew that his fans wouldn’t have blinked if his next album skimmed past the allegations. That’s not uncommon for men to do. And it’s not as if we hadn’t seen Beyoncé and Jay-Z out in the world together since then—not to mention, welcoming their twins to planet Earth. Jay-Z could have ignored it all. But, instead, he chose a path of candor that will—like Brad’s and Prince Harry’s—move the conversation forward and help others.”
That’s a woman who can appreciate owning up to your wrongdoings!
