Internet comes for the writer of the Rihanna Vogue cover story, author explains herself

In the Rihanna cover story, the author Abby Aguirre wrote:

"Normally I bring a list of questions, but I didn’t have time to prepare one, which I make a split-second decision to confess. “I’m winging it, so you have to help me,” I say nervously. Rihanna flashes a grin that is somehow both reassuring and mischievous. “Aren’t we all?” she says."

This has sent Twitter in a frenzy, arguing that they would never come unprepared.

However, the writer (who profiled Rihanna back in 2016 for Vogue and reportedly gets along with her very well) took to defend herself on Twitter. She says she was "driving to Trader Joe's in sweatpants when I got the call and literally had to flip a bitch. I research my subjects to death. *Especially* Rihanna."

Thoughts? Do you think Twitter is overreacting or should the writer not have admitted it in the profile?
