Which of the Super Bowl Village music acts are you most looking forward to? “Patti LaBelle. She is singing on our Super Cure theme day. It’s perfect. She’s an amazing woman.”

Going to the game? Yes.

Super Bowl winner prediction: “I love Eli Manning, and I’m from Maine. So I grew up with the Patriots. I’ll be happy either way.”

Are you torn then? “Not really. I just want a great game. I think that, if the game is great, people won’t care who wins.”

Dream celebrity encounter: “That’s a hard one.” [pauses] “Mike Epps is so funny and has been involved with us for some time. I look forward to hanging out with him. He’s a blast.”
