So what’s UPSAHL’s new single, Monica Lewinsky, actually about? This song mostly celebrates women like Monica, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Miley Cyrus who have made a huge impact on pop culture, but have been dragged down by the media and public opinion. They were constantly criticized and judged for everything they did, and it’s unfair that their legacy has been overshadowed by these judgements. However, they all fought back and continue to fight back against the negative labels that have been bestowed upon them.
UPSAHL believes these women, who had to deal with bullsh*t in their early careers, are the primary reason she has the freedom to operate in the creative domain. Monica Lewinsky is her ode to them. We need more songs like this – those that advocate for justice.
