Glee star Naya Rivera graces the October cover of LATINA magazine.
Now that the upcoming season of her FOX series is just weeks away from its premiere date, Rivera has a lot to talk about. Aside from working on her music career, the actress chatted with the magazine about her dreams, breaking down boundaries and much more.
Check out some highlights from her interview with the mag below!
On Her Playlist-
“I love singing Adele and Lana Del Rey is super dope. And Top 40 stuff. I get influences when I am writing from everywhere; I listen to so much music that it’s easy to just grab what you need.
On Her DVR–
“I watch Girls, House of Cards, Modern Family, and American Horror Story I love; even TV movies are so good.”
On humble upbringings-
“I had a great childhood and have a great family. My siblings are awesome and no matter what happened financially we always made the best of it.”
On being in the Kitchen-
“I like cooking everything. I get on food blogs and save recipes and go back and make them. I make fried chicken, I’m in charge of the macaroni and cheese on holidays. I can make lasagnas and pastas – I’m a good cook!”
On fulfilling the dreams on her vision board-
“I had made a vision board in 2006 or 2007 after I graduated high school. In 2008 I found it. I looked at it and I could take everything off from the board.”
On breaking down boundaries-
“When people look at me, I genuinely think they don’t see me as anything other than Naya which is crazy and so cool. I feel like I’ve gotten to a place where I have transcended color lines and it’s a big testament to playing a lesbian character on TV because everyone’s so accepting of everything and I think that’s beautiful.”
