Her love life is no secret:
A girl like Naya Rivera doesn’t stay single for long. The Glee star officially went public about her relationship with rapper Big Sean during a red carpet appearance. Flaunting your new love in front of paparazzi? Yes, that’s so J.Lo.
She has raw talent:
Naya started modeling as a baby and slowly worked her way to stardom by making appearances in hit sitcoms like Family Matters and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. J.Lo also hustled her way to the top with her "Fly Girl" moves on In Living Color, which led to the megastar she is today.
She’s proud of her Puerto Rican roots:
Naya may not hail from the Bronx like Lopez, but she certainly prideful of being Latina. “We are feisty and fiery and as much as people consider that a stereotype, I find it a compliment,” she said during an interview at the GLAAD Awards.
She admires J.Lo:
In her May 2012 Latina cover story, Naya revealed, “I would love to be where she is one day.” Glee’s co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy also said, “I’m friends with Jennifer, and they’re both beautiful, fun, talented and ambitious.”
She gives back:
The 26-year-old is all about paying it forward just like the “Dance Again” singer! She dedicates her time to a wide-range of organizations including, Stand Up to Cancer, GLAAD, and The Sunshine Foundation, which helps physically challenged and abused children. Lopez has been a part of foundations like, UNICEF, Amnesty International, and The Red Cross.
