PHOTOS: Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith And Famous Friends Hit GLAAD Media Awards Red Carpet

Glee stars Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith may have hosted the 2012 GLAAD Media Awards, but they didn’t too much media at the ceremony.

Rivera and Monteith dipped onto the red carpet to take photos, but didn’t walk down the press line.

Luckily for you, we went to the wrong floor for the dinner and caught sight of Rivera, who plays lesbian character Santana on the hit TV show.

Queerty asked her what she thought of fans who called her coming-out episode “offensive,” what with its somewhat obvious use of “I Kissed A Girl” and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” as coquettish interludes.

“Storylines are storylines,” she said. “I had fun doing it. I didn’t see anything offensive about it.”

While it’s true that Ryan Murphy controls the storylines, and ought to be in the aim of offended parties, she could’ve maybe protested to the Murphs—although as a 25-year-old up-and-coming actress she probably doesn’t have enough clout for that.

Check out all our video interviews from the red carpet, and stay tuned for more coverage tomorrow.

Click through for photos of her co-star Cory Monteith, and check out what the rest of the stars, from Dakota Fanning to to the Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino to Wendy Williams, wore.
