Justin Timberlake fronts one of five covers for GQ magazine’s Men of the Year issue.
Looking cool as a fan in his cover shot, Timberlake insist he’s not “cool.”
“Listen, I'm not cool,” he told GQ. “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.”
Timberlake also credits not being cool for his success. “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? You know?'” he adds.
Rapper Kendrick Lamar also graced a cover for the magazine's upcoming 18th annual Men of the Year issue.
