Monica Lewinksy owns one of the most famous faces in the world. For years the public had little more than that famous face as a way to identify the most well-known intern in history. But Ms. Lewinsky has worked to reinvent herself — or, more aptly, to reanimate her public image. Turns out Ms. Lewinsky is funny, among sundry other talents, and it’s a good thing as she’s needed her sense of humor while being a target for so much vitriol.
These days that famous face can be seen with a big, well-earned smile most of the time. The advocate against bullying (a role she was made for), writer, and entrepreneur is relaxed enough now to post tweets like the one below about Beyonce’s new album Lemonade. Beyonce’s record is filled with sensational rage about cheating spouses and takes plenty of shots at “side chicks.” Lewinsky asked her Twitter followers if it was “safe for her to listen”! Coming from the most famous “side chick” since Marilyn Monroe, that’s a joke made by someone grown very comfortable in her skin. Brava!
