Rivera Graces Cover of Rolling Stone’s “Latin Hot List” Issue

Rolling Stone’s male readers may experience serious heart palpitations, thanks to Naya Rivera.

The 26-year-old half-Puerto Rican singer/actress and Glee star – this year’s best-costumed Latina during the Halloween party period – bares plenty of skin all on the cover of Rolling Stone’s Latin Hot List issue.

Heralded as “Glee’s Bad Girl,” Rivera stripped down to a bodysuit for the cover, showing off her lengthy legs and an eyeful of cleavage.

Rivera, who’s featured on the flip cover of the issue, dished about her role on Fox’s hit musical dramedy and her ambitions of a music career.

“It took a long time to figure out where I wanted to go musically,” she said of her upcoming album, explaining that she insisted her label release “Sorry” as a single this summer. “This is what I’m doing,” she told the label, “Get on or get off. I think this is a summer song, and I want it on the radio by the end of the summer.”

Rolling Stone’s special Latino-themed issue also includes profiles on DJs the Martinez Brothers, novelist Daniel Alarcon, pop star Becky G, chef Danny Mena, rock star Draco Rosa, and Brooklyn-based band Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra.

Peruvian-born Daniel Alarcon, who was named one of the best young U.S. writers by The New Yorker, created the podcast.

“It’s a way to get to know ourselves more, to share our stories,” said Alarcon, who has written several prize-winning novels, inclduing Radio Ciudad Perdida and Guerra a la Luz de las Velas.

Narratives broadcast on Radio Ambulante’s official launch Tuesday included the story told by former Honduran President Mel Zelaya of his exile after being ousted in a June 2009 coup, and the odyssey of a Peruvian who stowed away on a ship to New York in 1959.

Alarcon, who resides in San Francisco and serves as the executive producer for the project, is assisted by a team of journalists, poets and writers scattered around the globe.

During a test run earlier this year, Radio Ambulante was visited by listeners in more than 70 countries in Latin America and beyond, including faraway places like Indonesia, Belgium and Namibia.
