The half Puerto Rican star strikes a seductive pose in a sexy black bodysuit that accentuates her curves, and black high heels that shows off her long legs. Rivera was shot for Rolling Stone by famed photographed Terry Richardson.
"A big thanks to @RollingStone for showing me so much love! Such an honor to be featured!" Rivera tweeted. "My @RollingStone feature hits newsstands November 8th! Can't wait for you guys to see it -- don't forget to pick up a copy!"
In the issue, Rivera, who plays lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez on Glee, discusses her upcoming debut album.
"It took a long time to figure out where I wanted to go musically," she explains. This summer, Rivera decided to release her first single "Sorry." against her label's wishes. "This is what I'm doing," she recalls telling Columbia Records. "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."
The track also features Rivera's fiance Big Sean. The couple became engaged in October, six months after going public with their relationship.
