SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] Hi this is Charreah Jackson, Essence Magazine's relationships editor, and you are watching Ask A Brother. Today we have a very juicy celeb exclusive, none other than NFL superstar Mr. Cam Newton. [INAUDIBLE] He is joining us, Essence, with a very juicy exclusive that he is the new face of, what? [UNKNOWN]. Absolutely, yeah, hot new cologne that you will want to get for your man, if you haven't already gotten it already. You know, sweat and cologne? Not only the perfect match, so have you always been a man who's locked in a good cologne? I have, I have. Growing up in Atlanta, I've always had some type of. Sense of, you know, self-awareness in appearance. And you know, in Atlanta it's all about style. It's all about swag and, and, and for me, since a young age, I've always, you know, wanted to be on my A-game when it comes to that. I'm from Atlanta, can have a, a mix of some flashy. We like our color. We like our. So how would you describe your personal style? Well, it's always ongoing and changing. I think for me, I'm always trying to evolve, to make my style complete. It's not a specific style because I always want to be labeled as something. Or someone who is relevant So what do you feel you're sexiest when you're wearing? Man, I don't know if I'm the person you supposed to be ask, answering that question Well you know, we all have that moment where you're looking in the mirror and you're like I look good right now Well I can tell you this. I feel like I am at my freshest when we all have that moment when we're looking in the mirror right Right Male or female and you're looking and. Looking and you know, boom, bah, bah, for the females, you just finished your makeup and you grab your perfume, or in my case I grab my cologne and my cologne is [UNKNOWN] Essence. Couple of squirts. Big night? [NOISE] Bigger night? [NOISE] Alright, now go ahead and lay them out, that's my freshness right there. Then my last look in the mirror. Okay, I'm ready. Oh. So we've got some of the sexiness. We know you like the Your Drakkar essence on. But you have to tell us what's been a fashion mistake. What's your, been your, your biggest fashion misstep. I think for me it's always, or for others, it's trying to do too much. Mitch match, mitchy mitchy match. Gucci Gucci Gucci. Louie Louie Louie. It's like man, just. Team too much. Yeah, come on now. Just let it happen. We see you at your sexiest, so what's that moment for a woman when you see her at her sexiest. Oh man, she has to own the moment, right and no matter what that moment is, man, we can be at the gym, we could be at dinner, we can be wherever. Own that time. You know, you could be in sweat pants. You could be in a dress. You could be in a formal dress. You could be in an informal dress. You could be going to the club. You could be watching the lounge. You could be watching a basketball, football, baseball game. You could be going to the bar, to watch the game. No matter how, what you're doing or how you're doing it. Just own it. What are the qualities for a woman you would bring home to meet your mom? She has to be very independent. She has to be strong willed. She has to be warm and understanding, because my life is not normal. [MUSIC] and, and, you know? Sometimes, you know? I wanna, you know, be compassionate. But, you know? And a lot of times, I'm forced to be selfish, in trying to better myself in my work field. Mm hm. And, that, that, that takes a lot of time. So somebody that's understanding with that. Somebody that's patient. and, you know? That's, that's the person that, that's coming home with the. Mr. [INAUDIBLE] All right. [MUSIC]
