Actress and singer Naya Rivera covers the October 2013 issue of Latina
magazine. Naya is best known for her role as Santana on Glee
. She is also embarking on a singing career and recently released her single, "Sorry
." Naya talked
about her boyfriend, Big Sean, her mixed-race heritage and Jennifer Lopez.
On Her Relationship With Big Sean
: "We know so many who are in the public eye dating somebody, and they're going in through back entrances and won't make eye contact with each other. That's just not us."
On Her Mixed-Race Heritage
: "It used to hold me back when I was younger. Casting directors didn't understand what I was. I wasn't black enough, or Latina enough - I kind of fell through the cracks."
On Following in Jennifer Lopez's Footsteps
: "It's insane how gorgeous she is. Jennifer Lopez is a perfect example of what it means to be a mogul and have longevity, but still have people like you. She can do this until she chooses not to anymore. I hope I can say that one day."
