Naya Rivera Talks Album Delays & Going Topless with 'Galore' (Exclusive Pics!)

Naya Rivera shows off her amazing body in leather booty shorts on the cover of Galore‘s latest issue, provided exclusively to

Here’s what the 27-year-old Glee actress had to share with the mag:

On how to look great at the beach this summer: “I would say an even skin tone is really important and a good tan never hurt anybody. I think a really good bikini and confidence is probably number one.”

On upcoming projects she’s excited about: “Finishing this season of Glee and a lot of other things like photo shoots and things I can’t really confirm.”

On her upcoming album: We are kind of halting production on the album because there are so many things going on. Politics got involved so I’ve been putting it on the back burner; there are a lot of things that I’m doing that I’m excited about.

On if she’d ever go topless at the beach: “It depends on how private that beach is.”

    She is gorgeous!

  • Gia

    where is she topless?

  • Tina

    So no album then.

  • Clair

    Why would you tan if you already have tan skin? Okay.

  • Really?

    I heard she wasn’t going back to glee.

  • Really?

    I also heard she was dropped from her label. LMAO

  • Dolly

    @Really?: She wasn’t dropped but she might has well been. This pushed back her album.

  • Stella

    “…and things I can’t really confirm.” so nothing. she has nothing going on.

  • Princess


  • Andrea

    I don’t watch Glee. If she is done then whatever.

  • Trovia


  • LOL

    If She is still signed to columbia that album will never get out.

  • Yes!!


  • Shay

    Is this the #Bombshellofthesummer?

  • Sophia

    No album, no Glee… guess she’ll make her money with “candids” and photoshoots.

  • TT

    She is pretty girl and she has a great voice. Her single was severely auto tune with generic lyrics. Sad to see another talent go to waste.

  • falling

    @Sophia: Glee is over so she wasn’t going to make money from that.

  • falling

    The career for these Glee kids is over after Glee except for Jane Lynch.

  • falling

    @Sophia: Also you don’t make money from candids.

  • falling

    And Dianna Agrom who is already struggling in the movie business despite her classical hollywood looks.

  • Gail

    She would have a much better shot if she left the label. Signed for 4 years but no album? I would have left after year 2.

  • Tiffany

    Her single didn’t do good that’s why they halt her album.

  • DAMN

    I thought she went topless on this mag!

  • Jenny

    Done go topless on beaches. There are a bunch of perverts that will secretly takes photos of you and post them on facebook!

  • Roberta

    @falling: I agree with you. Jane Lynch was the best thing on Glee by a mile. Although I think Naya is a great singer ad a decent actress, I can’t see her or any Glee actor making it big in the industry. A sign of that was Amber Riley on Dancing with the stars.

  • Lauren

    @Tiffany: That is crap because release albums and single for artist that do far worst. Sorry was a poor single with poor promotion but her sold 40+ copies. Her co-star single didn’t do well either but she got to release more singles (that flopped) and full album and music videos.
    The label is at fault here.

  • Patria

    @falling: Your speaking the truth. Jane Lynch is the only one that could and is doing good outside of glee.

  • Sharlene

    She is pretty. I’m buying.

  • Fiona

    @Roberta: Watch Naya Rivera make it big now.

  • Fiona

    @Tiffany: Her single did great for the promotion it got.

  • Fiona

    @Lauren: And what what it even worst is that Lea Michele got all the promotion in the world but it still flopped. They could’ve given a little promotion to Naya Rivera but no.

  • Britt

    ““I would say an even skin tone is really important and a good tan never hurt anybody.” except for giving skin cancer.

  • Niomi

    I love this photo shoot but her interview in the last was better.

  • Hanna


  • Guest

    She’s looks great! :)

  • Tyla

    “A good tan never hurt anybody.” That made me LOL. Tell that to people who have skin cancer!! On another note, going topless and releasing an album should NEVER be put together. Naya will not be respected for her music. What poor career choices.

  • Pipper

    Sucks how her album is a lost cause.

  • Faye

    This look is great. She looks better in candid and photoshoot than on the red carpet.

  • Ivana


  • fab

    She’s gorgeous and like she clearly said she has upcoming projects that she can’t talk about.

  • GNR

    I hope she get nominated for an Emmy. She a fantastic actress and singer.

  • Chris

    I am absolutely in love with these photos.
