| Filed under: GleeHeather MorrisNaya Rivera

So much Santana goodness!!

The wonderful Naya Rivera recently graced us with an EXCLUSIVE PerezHilton.com interview as part of her promotional tour for Bud Light Music First’s 50/50/1 show.

And while she chatted with us about her beau Big Sean and new concert hosting gig, she also happily opened up about Glee’s upcoming fifth season!

Ch-ch-check out the full clip (above)!!

But if you Gleeks are all too eager, keep reading for the scoop…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

On playing Santana for a fifth year:

“It’s been so cool… I’ve been able to consistently play a character. When I go to work, I feel that I’m living Santana. I think that’s one of the reasons why I love television so much.”

On what to expect on Season 5:

”She started off as just being super rude to everybody, then she came out and she was super sad. Now she’s liberated again and has moved to New York. I think in Season 5 we’ll get to see more of her growing up and exploring different things.”

On Glee’s casting cuts:

“I don’t think it’s going to be that big of a chance because our storylines were so spread out last season. It was really third season when we knew we weren’t all going to be together anymore, so we mourned that than. I think it’s bittersweet still… We are all adults so it’s really nice to see everyone branch out.”

On Heather Morris’ baby-to-come:

”She’s so cute. She just looks adorable. She just looks the same, except someone stuck a huge belly on her. Everywhere else, you’re like, ‘You’re not pregnant.’”

On the possibility of Naya joining the American Horror Story cast, following the filming of her thriller:

"I know! I keep asking…! It would be so cool! You'd just move onto another Ryan Murphy show!"

Fingers crossed!!

    Is this the last interview? I love all of these Naya interviews. I don't care for Glee but I love her and Dianna.

    I've always wanted her to sing "Out Tonight" from RENT on Glee! I really want her to know that she, not to mention her character, would be PERFECT for that role! And now that she's in New York and had a job in Coyote Ugly, the song will be the cherry on top for her New York sexy dancer moment!
