'GQ' man of the year Justin Timberlake: 'Listen, I'm not cool'

Say whaaaat?

That’s right: In the pages of GQ‘s brand new Men of the Year issue, Justin Timberlake — smooth-singing, Tom Ford-rocking, Elvis’s-granddaughter-maker-outer Justin Timberlake — claims he isn’t cool. Which sort of makes us want to curl into the fetal position and sob; after all, if this guy isn’t cool, what hope could there possibly be for the rest of us?

Wait, strike that — see, Timberlake is using the whole “cool” thing as a means to explain his general philosophy, which falls somewhere on the #YOLO spectrum. “Being cool,” he clarifies to the magazine, “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.” And here is where the strings begin to swell.

“I’ve made a career out of doing things that I should not be doing,” Timberlake continues. “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?”

The vocals cut out. There’s a brief moment of silence. Then — crashing cymbals! Gospel choir! Key change!


It's all part of the (city) plan -- See Gotham mapped out


Within the Batman universe and especially in Christopher Nolan’s interpretation, Gotham City is a character all of its own. Nolan’s trilogy was shot in a variety of locations, with Chicago, Pittsburgh, L.A. and New York, among others, combining to create the ultimate comic book locale, but what exactly does that look like?

The Dark Knight Manual (Insight Editions) illustrates a comprehensive view of the city’s exact layout and while various versions of the map have been online since 2008, this one is the clearest. But where is Wayne Manor or the theater and Crime Alley where Bruce Wayne’s parents met their untimely demise? Take a look at a bigger version of the map below.
