GQ, Men of the Year, Justin Timberlake

Oh Justin Timberlake, you are perfection.

The insanely handsome star covers one of the five GQ Men of the Year issues looking absolutely amazing in a casual blue blazer and pant suit which accentuates his baby blues.

Along with his brooding yet sexy look on the cover, J.T. discusses a number of topics inside the magazine, including this absurd idea that he's "not cool." Um, what?! Clearly, he's mistaken, but his explanation on the matter makes a bit more sense.

"Listen, I'm not cool," Timberlake said. "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."

He continued, "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?"

Well, now we understand.

The 32-year-old Memphis native also spoke about dealing with harsh critics in this industry, and told the mag, "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 f--king kill everybody."

Regardless, J.T. doesn't spend too much time worrying about what's being said, because he's already working on his next big project.

"I don't see myself as someone who's ever going to be defined by one moment," he said. "It's on to the next."
