Pop Culture Fix: Heather Morris Remembers Naya Rivera, Thanks You for Brittana From the Bottom of Her Heart

It’s your Monday Pop Culture Fix! (It’s Monday, right?)


+ Heather Morris has posted another beautiful tribute to Naya Rivera, this time thanking fans for believing so much in Brittana and for sharing how much that couple meant to her and Naya over the years.

“I don’t need to explain what the importance of Santana and Brittany’s relationship was to all of you who are watching, because most of you felt like it was your gateway into your current life. Most of you felt like it was an inspiration to become your best self. I want you to know that that was never lost on me. It was never lost on Naya. We both knew how special that was. I think she knew a little bit more than I did. I really felt it a lot later with all the messages and all the people reaching out. and I knew the writers also knew that as well. They were basically writing for the fans.”
