Monica Lewinsky Says She Empathized with Tyler Clementi Over Public Online Humiliation

Lewinsky

Monica Lewinsky is talking about her affair with Bill Clinton in a new Vanity Fair profile, and talks about why she's going public:

When Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers freshman who was secretly streamed via Webcam kissing another man, committed suicide in September 2010, Lewinsky writes, she was brought to tears, but her mother was especially distraught: “She was reliving 1998, when she wouldn’t let me out of her sight. She was replaying those weeks when she stayed by my bed, night after night, because I, too, was suicidal. The shame, the scorn, and the fear that had been thrown at her daughter left her afraid that I would take my own life—a fear that I would be literally humiliated to death.” Lewinsky clarifies that she has never actually attempted suicide, but had strong suicidal temptations several times during the investigations and during one or two periods after.

Lewinsky writes that following Clementi’s tragedy “my own suffering took on a different meaning. Perhaps by sharing my story, I reasoned, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?” She also says that, when news of her affair with Clinton broke in 1998, not only was she arguably the most humiliated person in the world, but, “thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet.” Her current goal, she says, “is to get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”

Justin Bieber Called Bill Clinton to Apologize for Swearing At Him

After video surfaced yesterday of Justin Bieber pissing in a janitor's bucket in a New York restaurant before screaming "F**k Bill Clinton" and spraying a wall with cleaning fluid, someone in Bieber's camp had the teen pop star call the former President and apologize, E! online reports:

BieberThe insider tells us that the erstwhile commander in chief took Bieber's slam in jest, saying something along the lines of, "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well."

...

We're also told that Bieber told the statesman and activist that if there was anything he could do for the Clinton Global Initiative, he would love to help. Clinton, in turn, told the pop singer to focus on the good that he can do for the world—and to keep an eye on his friends (one of whom purportedly leaked the video in question).

Tweeted Bieber yesterday afternoon: "@billclinton thanks for taking the time to talk Mr. President. Your words meant alot. #greatguy"
