Sugarpova Crashers: A Q & A with Maria Sharapova

We got the chance to attend Maria Sharapova's Sugarpova event at the La Quinta Resort and Spa while at the BNP Paribas Open.  First, Maria had a little Q & A for the fans, and after she did part of our Quick Q & A!!  She then turned her attention to the VERY long line of fans who had been waiting for quite some time to meet their idol.  Our interview and photos of the event are after the jump!  Enjoy!

Maria Sharapova

What is your guilty pleasure outside of sweets?
Modern art.  I love modern art.  I collect modern art.

Who is your favorite artist?
A few that I can’t afford, no, I really love a California artist Chris Gwaltney, (click here to see his art) he is one of my favorites and I have many of his, Ed Moses, and I have a few of his son’s [Andy Moses] work as well.  Abstract art is my favorite.

What is your biggest pet peeve?
I don’t like clogs. 

So there won’t ever be any clogs in your shoe line?
No, no clogs.  (laughter)

What are you most afraid of?
I don’t like insects or spiders.  I don’t like dentists, I’m not a fan.

Really?  Well my friend [the photographer] is a dentist.
Well....if you are friendly and gentle one, we can be friends! (laughter)

Do you have a celebrity crush?
Actually when I met Michael Jordan I was very star struck.  He came up to me and said, “Oh, you’re the tennis player” and I was like “Uhhhhhhh yeah!!” (laughter)

If you had one superhero ability what would it be?

If there was a fire and you could only save one thing, what would it be?
I would say my passport, just because it is so hard to get another one! (laughter)
