Marcell Johnson, the cute 18-year-old son of Taraji P. Henson, has landed a campaign with the SquareBear clothing.  The proud mama tweeted, Be different! Get SQUARED UP!!! @mysquarebear I love everything about this brand....especially the model!

And we think this gig may be Marcell's way of breaking into the real world and paying for college as Taraji revealed to Jimmy Fallon last year that she wants Marcel to sit out of college for a semester and learn what it's like in the real world.  She said,

"Even though he is privileged, he doesn't remember the bad times when we were eating Hamburger Helper and peanut butter and jelly for dessert. He remembers all the good times and I don't want to raise this privileged kid, who's out of touch, so I made him sit out the first semester and he has to get a job. He called his grandmother, he was like, 'It's hard out here, it's hard to find a job.' So I was like, 'Yeah, I need you to know that.'"

"I need him to see how real it is out here. It builds character. I told him, 'College is like an investment. I'm investing my money in your future, and if I feel like you're a bad investment, I'm taking my money back."

Well.....Marcell seems to be doing well so far!

 

And he's in great company as Kelly Rowland is among the celebs who've also rocked SquareBear.

The SquareBear brand describes itself as the brand for folks who don't just think outside of the box....they are the box.

Can't believe Taraji has a GROWN son! She looks great for her age, & her son is adorable! Gotta love a CELEB who instills values in their child instead of UNLIMITED FUNDS!

he's a cutie. I dont agree

he's a cutie. I dont agree with the whole thing about not sending him to college just like i wouldnt agree with not sending him to elementary or high school but it aint my child so whatever. kids dont come with instructions so you have to just play it by ear. and now I want some hamburger helper for dinner. havent had it in years, i wonder if its still as good as i remember....lol!

She plans to pay for his

She plans to pay for his college education ---made him sit out a semester to test the job market so that the young man will have firsthand knowledge how difficult it is to land a job without a college diploma. She also stated, wisely I think, that she will only CONTINUE to pay for his college education if he is a good student, and thus proving to be a wise investment. As a community, we would be a lot farther along if more black parents taught their children the same lesson: there are no free lunches... Edited to add: he is a cutie, I agree :)

I read the same post as you,

I read the same post as you, so why did you feel the need to paraphrase it??? and I STILL dont agree. I think you send your kids right to college and pay for it in the same way you would send your kids to elementary, junior and high school. Again, everybody can do it their own way but its not how I will be doing it. In my opinion, thats the whole point of being privileged!

Taken from your original

Taken from your original post: "I dont agree with the whole thing about not sending him to college". As a parent, Ms. Henson made the decision to sit her son out for a semester. In Europe, by the way, young people spend a "gap year" pursuing other interests before attending university; Princes William and Henry spent their gap years in other parts of the world, as most privileged kids do. Reading is fundamental. You didn't quality your statement that you didn't agree with her sitting him for a year, you wrote that you disagreed with her not "sending him to college". Her kid, her choice!

Dearie, is that the best you

Dearie, is that the best you could do? Lesson one: the first person to launch an ad hominem attack is the loser, as you're unable to defend your positon so you muddy the water with personal attacks. Lesson two: mind your manners, you're speaking to your superior! Now, back to the ghetto you go, and leave civilized discussions such as decent people educating their children to people who have actually GONE to college :). Hoodrats such as yourself ought to know your place, and I hope that I don't have to remind you again. You are starting to bore me ---thought you could have come up with a better response, so I have had my fun with you, therefore I won't bother to check in on what I assume will be your foul mouthed response.
