Justin Timberlake Graces GQ's Men of the Year Issue, Says He Is 'Not Cool'


The 'Mirrors' singer covers one of the five GQ Men of the Year issues, saying in accompanying interview, 'I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment.'

Justin Timberlake graces the cover of GQ's Men of the Year issue in a cool blue blazer. The singer, who covers one of the five versions, opens up about his view in life and work in an accompanying interview, insisting that he is "not cool."

The "Mirrors" singer explains, "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad." Jessica Biel's husband additionally urges people to take risks and develop their skills.

"It's important to take risks. To do sketch comedy when you're supposed to be staying in your lane as a singer. To do movies when all people want is your next album. I've made a career out of doing things that I should not be doing. I wasn't cool about it because being cool would have meant I passed up on those opportunities. If you do that, it's because you're afraid. And what are you afraid of?" he says. "I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment. It's on to the next."

In the interview, Timberlake also talks about growing up in Memphis and responding to critics. "It's a struggling city with a defeatist attitude. I'm from this town, and I grew up with a little bit of a chip on my shoulder, so sometimes I find it funny that I've been able to acquire the patience it takes to be kind to people in our business. Because sometimes I just want to (expletive) kill everybody," he admits.

The former NSYNC member is not the only one featured in the 18th annual Men of the Year issue. He is joined by Matthew McConaughey, Kendrick Lamar, Will Ferrell and the late James Gandolfini. Each of them has separate cover.
