In case you haven't heard, "Glee" star Naya Rivera is taken - and its all thanks to Twitter.
The 26-year-old singer/actress has been dating rapper Big Sean "for a minute now," as she tells Access Hollywood, and it turns out that their romance was launched online.
"I had followed him and he sent me a little message, like, 'I'm a fan,'" Rivera said Tuesday. "I tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention. We went to dinner and the rest is history. ... It's going really well."
That history now includes collaborating on Rivera's first single, "Sorry," which arrived on Tuesday, and being photographed by the infamous Terry Richardson.
The actress, who's played the fiery Santana Lopez on the Fox dramedy since its inception, has been awaiting her solo moment in the spotlight since she "was a little girl," she told Rolling Stone.
"This is my baby," she continued. "This is something that I did for me and I really fought hard to have people believe in me and believe in the song."
Her boyfriend Sean has thrown his weight behind it, and has been "my biggest cheerleader," Rivera said. "It's so awesome that he got on it and it's something that we'll always have together."
