Rihanna responds to the Vogue cover controversy

Last week, there was backlash to a Vogue writer's admission that she had come to her Rihanna interview unprepared.

In the piece, writer Abby Aguirre had written: "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."

The writer later clarified that she had been "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."

Now the star herself, Rihanna, has weighed in. Women's Wear Daily reports that Rihanna was asked about it at an event promoting her new coffee table book, to which she responded:

“Wait, wait, what? No, no, no, no. That’s gangster. For you to get a call the day before being like, ‘Hey, Rihanna’s in L.A., you wanna do this?’ And show up on the dime and write an incredible article that I’m really proud of and enjoyed reading? She’s badass for that.”

She continued, "“If you don’t have to prepare, girl, you’re gangster."
