First, some full disclosure, even though it makes me look like a dope. I interviewed Cam Newton a few weeks ago and he was extremely nice and I thought the Q&A was very entertaining. However, when I went to transcribe the conversation, I only heard my hideous voice on the tape. Yes, I set up the recorder incorrectly. However, Newton was nice enough to answer a few light-hearted questions via e-mail.

 
SI.com: If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?
 
Newton: Oprah Winfrey.
 
SI.com: Song you’d sing at karaoke?
 
Newton: “You are the Sunshine of my Life” by Steve Wonder.
 
SI.com: Song on your iPod you’re ashamed of.
 
Newton: “Lion King” theme song (“Circle of Life”).
 
SI.com: Best boy band of all time?
 
Newton: Boyz II Men.
 
SI.com: TV shows you DVR?
 
Newton: “Duck Dynasty.”
 
SI.com: Favorite TV character of all time?
 
Newton: Martin.
 
SI.com: Movie you’ve seen the most?
 
Newton: “Coming to America.”
 
SI.com: Fashion tip for men?
 
Newton: Stay neat, wear ties even with casual look. Looking sharp impresses those who matter most.
 
SI.com: Fashion don’t for men?
 
Newton: I don’t necessarily believe in dont’s. If you have confidence in your vision, anything is possible.
 
SI.com: First few websites you check after logging onto the Internet?
 
Newton: CNN.com, SI.com, SoleCollector.com, Youtube.com, CamNewtonFoundation.org.
 
SI.com: Biggest pet peeves?
 
Newton: People who say they will do something but don’t follow through.
 
SI.com: Most annoying question reporters ask you?
 
Newton: Any leading question where it is clear they already have their own answer in mind.
 
SI.com: Game day superstitions?
 
Newton: No superstitions, but I do make a new playlist for every game.
 
SI.com: Do you have any fears/phobias?
 
Newton: Not that I am aware of.
 
SI.com: If you could trade places with one athlete, who would it be?
 
Newton: I wouldn’t trade with anyone, but I do have an enormous amount of respect for LeBron James.
 
SI.com: Funniest athlete you know?
 
Newton: Panthers offensive lineman Jordan Gross.
 
SI.com: Best perk of being an athlete?
 
Newton: Being able to make a positive difference in other people’s lives.
 
SI.com: Secret Passion?
 
Newton: I love taking photos. I use my Windows Phone to take photos of my daily activities and just about every place that I visit.

ESPN: "Cam Newton hates the Lion King, too dumb to know if he has any phobias, wants to play for the Heat"

The sad thing is... they would probably publish an article like that about him.

He was plugging everyone in that. Makes me wonder if his handlers filled it out for him...
