YBF KIDS: Taraji P. Henson's Son Marcell MODELS For "SquareBear"
Taraji P. Henson's son is putting his mom's good genes to good use as a spokesmodel for the SquareBear brand. See pics and find out who else wears the brand inside....
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.
