Glee star Naya Rivera is on fire!
Only days after making a splash on the red carpet at MTV's VMAs, then winning the coveted E!'s Fashion Police best dressed for the event and eventually making an appearance later that week on Fashion Police, Naya is once again gracing the October cover of Latina Magazine.
Naya tackles the tough subject of how the cast of Glee is handling the tragic death of their costar Cory Monteith, who suddenly passed away July 13th at the age of 31 due to a drug overdose.
She says of the healing process, "We're definitely taking it day by day. Everybody's really just leaning on each other and trying to do good work."
The cast of Glee is currently in production of its fifth season, which will have a tribute episode to Cory Monteith as well as welcome pop singer and X Factor judge Demi Lovato.

Demi plays Dani, a struggling artist in New York who befriends Rachel (Lea Michele) and ends up as Naya's new love interest.
Naya tells Latina Magazine what it's like being an icon to the LGBT community. She shared, "There are very few ethnic LGBT characters on television, so I am honored to represent them. I love supporting this cause, but it's a big responsibility and sometimes it's a lot of pressure on me."
The Glee beauty opened up about recording her debut album and her relationship with her rapper boyfriend Big Sean, who is also on the album. The twosome met on Twitter and she describes why they don't feel the need to keep their romance private. "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," she explained. "That's just not us."
