Solange: I want my boy to have a normal job

Solange Knowles says she’s hoping her son Julez will become a professor rather than following his family into the entertainment business.

The 28-year-old singer is no stranger to the entertainment business, as she’s a successful songwriter, singer and fashion designer. She is also the younger sister of former Destiny’s Child singer Beyoncé.

But Solange is hopeful that her 10-year-old son Julez will choose a different career path than both his mother and auntie.

“I'm gonna be supportive of whatever he does, but I'm hoping he wants to be a professor of some sort,” Solange told People.com.

“I mean, every parent wants their child to be fulfilled in whatever they do and be happy, so if he chooses to take this direction, then I'm going to support him. You know, it would be nice to see him do something a little more regulated.”

Solange split from Julez’s father, Daniel Smith, with their divorce confirmed in 2007. But in November last year, Solange walked down the aisle once again as she wed music video director Alan Ferguson.

And the stunning singer admits she’s happier than ever.

“A lot of people don't realise that my husband and I were together for … we're going on our seventh year, so this is just an extension of where we already were,” Solange said of her newlywed status. “It definitely elevates, being able to say ‘husband.’ Yeah, it's been wonderful. I'm extremely happy. I married my best friend.”

Opening up about the projects she has in the pipeline, Solange revealed she is extremely busy. As well as a new record, she teased fans about various other ventures that will soon be announced.

“I'm working on my album, which has been a huge labour of love. I am working on a new project with Kiehl's, which I'm super excited about. We're gonna reveal that project [eventually]. And then creative directing and art directing for Puma keeps me busy.

“Saint Records, my record label, has been a constant evolution … So my hands are full!”
