In the December 2013 issue of GQ, Justin Timberlake had the following to say about being cool:
“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… I’ve made a career out of doing things that I should not be doing. I wasn’t cool about it.”
This is somewhat of an ironic statement since Timberlake is one of the coolest people in music. He’s so cool, in fact, that he recently won a handful of American Music Awards and was nominated for seven Grammy Awards for next year’s ceremonies.
