Monica Lewinsky Talks About Male Vulnerability In New Essay
As y’all know, Monica Lewinsky is probably the most famous “home wrecker” of all time, and now she’s commenting on Jay Z’s choice to come clean about his own cheating endeavors on his album. She wrote an essay for Vanity Fair entitled “Jay-Z, Prince Harry, Brad Pitt, and the New Frontiers of Male Vulnerability” discussing the respective masculine stereotypes they are battling.
In the essay, Monica said about Hov, “It is a refreshing and bracing antidote to see male icons convey vulnerability in an age when Washington’s new power elite and our coarsening culture are busy projecting an outmoded caricature of manhood, 24/7” and “it’s heartening to see a crack in the implicit contract among men, their emotions, and society at large.”
She also discusses Piers Morgan’s ridicule of Brad Pitt, encouraging more people to wear it on their sleeves as he did. The essay centers around her praising men for showing sides that the public normally aren’t privy to, and encourages more men to be so open.
