Cam Newton on dancing: 'It takes me to a happy place'

Has there been negative attention from Cam Newton's dancing? A little. Does Newton let it impact him at all? Nope, not in the slightest.

When speaking about the subject (again), David Newton of ESPN reported that the Carolina Panthers quarterback doesn't seem to have any intention of stopping, because it takes him "to a happy place."

"It takes me to a happy place," he told ESPN of his celebrations. "I remember when I was in high school I used to look up to guys and mimic [them]. Now they're doing the things I do.

"People are looking at you whether you want them or not. When I see people do the celebration I do, it makes me happy.''

Now, Newton did take the high road about the letter that an upset mother sent him, per Newton.

"Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. You can't fault her for that. It is what it is," Newton said. "If she feels offended I'll apologize to her, but at the end of the day I am who I am.''

There you have it, Newton is open to apologizing, but hey, should he really have to? That's for you to decide.
