Monica Lewinsky Praises Jay-Z in Vanity Fair Essay
Monica Lewinsky Praises Jay-Z for Being Honest About His Alleged Infidelities
Monica Lewinsky has somewhat unexpectedly weighed in on Jay-Z's alleged infidelities. In an essay written forVanity Fair, she argued that famous men - using Brad Pitt, Prince Harry and Jay-Z as case studies - are gradually breaking down barriers of traditional masculinity.
She referenced Prince Harry's recent candour concerning the death of his mother and Pitt's much-publicisedGQinterview in which he talks about addressing his weaknesses.
In relation to Jay-Z, she lauded his apparent openness concerning his alleged marital infidelities. Many have speculated that his latest album,4: 44,references he and Beyonce's relationship issues.
"Jay-Z had a choice," wrote Lewinsky. "Having been called out publicly by his wife in her fierce 2019 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," she added. "But, instead, he chose a path of candor that will—like Brad's and Prince Harry's—move the conversation forward and help others."
The anti-bullying advocate and public speaker said it was "refreshing to see male icons convey vulnerability".
Jay-Z's latest album was seen as a response to Beyonce'sLemonade, in which she accused her husband of cheating on her. However, the rapper has seemingly since atoned for his indiscretions. In track4.44, he says it took for his children to realise what he had.
"I apologise, often womanise, took my child to be born, see through a woman's eyes," he rapped. "Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles. Took me too long for this song.
