Maya Angelou passed away Wednesday at the age of 86. Angelou had an incredibly varied life and career – aside from her autobiographical writing and poetry, she worked as a journalist in Egypt and Ghana, and at one point was a cast member in a touring production of the opera Porgy and Bess.

In 1993, already well known as a poet and autobiographer, Angelou was selected to read a poem at President Bill Clinton's first inaugural address. She was the first poet to read at an inauguration since Robert Frost read for JFK's 1961 ceremony, and both the first African-American and woman to read.

Originally posted 05/07/2014 12:15PM

If Monica Lewinsky had her way, she wouldn't be a verb in the Beyoncé dictionary.

In her upcoming Vanity Fair essay, the former White House intern speaks out on the way her life has changed in the 15 years since her infamous affair with former president Bill Clinton. As part of that, she offers a cheeky correction to Beyoncé's "Partition," which name-checks Lewinsky in a verse about oral sex.

On the track, Beyoncé enthuses about a memorable limousine dalliance: "He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse, he Monica Lewinsky'ed all on my gown."
