What I think she tuirned down your paper because "vulgo" is not a frequent word and it means something a litle bit pejorative

or perhaps she doesn´t like Bono

In Spain we would have said "Bono habló al público en español" or "Bono habló a la gente en español", vulgo is a very old fashioned word, it was used to mean "normal" people versus nobility.

Vulgo is low class people, it's got a negative sense.it's like saying peasants or something worse even. the best choices would be "Bono habló a los asistentes en español" or "Bono habló al público en español".
