Gloria Trevi (born Gloria de los Ángeles Treviño Ruiz on February 15, 1968 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico) is a Mexican pop-rock singer-songwriter. She was described as the "Supreme Diva of the Mexican Pop" by the music channel VH1 and sold over 20 million records. Her new album Gloria was released in 2011.

Trevi released her first album in 1989, ¿Qué Hago Aquí? (What am I doing here). The album scored an instant number one hit, "Dr. Psiquiatra", and four other songs from the album climbed the charts. Trevi followed her first record with Tu Ángel de la Guarda (Your guardian angel), which was more successful than the first. Pelo Suelto became her most widely known hit, reaching number one all over Latin America and Spain as well as becoming popular with the Latino population of the United States. Her third album, Me siento tan sola (I feel SO lonely), was released in 1992 garnering another hit, Zapatos Viejos (Old Shoes). All three albums were recorded in Los Angeles.

Her manager recruited young girls to talent camps and molested them. Trevi was initially indicted, was held in prison, but ultimately found innocent as she was not aware of the rape being committed by her manager.
