Eve’s fourth studio album, “Flirt,” is coming out later this year. Her debut, “Ruff Ryders’ First Lady,” was released in 1999 went double platinum. She won a Grammy in 2002 for best rap/sung collaboration for “Let Me Blow Ya Mind,” featuring Gwen Stefani.
Not new to the world of acting, Eve starred alongside Vin Diesel in “xXx,” “Barbershop” with Ice Cube and “The Cookout,” featuring Queen Latifah. Starting in 2003, Eve played a role as a fashion designer on her own TV show, “Eve,” for three seasons.
“Glee” was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan; it’s produced by Randy Murphy Television in association with 20th Century Fox. It debuts in the fall on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 9 p.m.
