Justin Timberlake Covers GQ’s ‘Men of the Year’ Issue

Justin Timberlake

He released the biggest-selling album of 2013, toured with Jay Z, and reunited with *NSYNC at the VMAs, and now Justin Timberlake caps off the year by covering GQ‘s “Men of the Year” issue.

The pop superstar, who was named “#Hashtag of the Year,” appears on one of five covers alongside Kendrick Lamar (“Rapper of the Year”), Matthew McConaughey (“Leading Man of the Year”), Will Ferrell (“Funnyman of the Year”), and the late James Gandolfini.

The 32-year-old singer gets suited up in designer fashions by Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Z Zegna in the dapper shoot by photographer Sebastian Kim.

In the interview, the normally laid-back JT loses his cool when responding to the criticism surrounding his work. Plus, he discusses his pre-show ritual (sleep and meditation) and why he doesn’t consider himself cool.

The December 2013 issue of GQ hits newsstands on Nov. 19. See more photos and read highlights from JT’s cover story below.

Justin Timberlake Launches ‘20/20 Experience World Tour’ in Brooklyn

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake and Jay Z made history with their “Legends of the Summer” stadium tour. But on Wednesday, Timberlake reemerged solo to kick off his “20/20 Experience World Tour” at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Following opening act The Weeknd (who will join him on five more dates), the pop superstar took the stage. Clad in a black-and-white tuxedo by Tom Ford, he opened with “Pusher Love Girl.”

“Brooklyn, are you ready?” asked JT.

With some help from his band, JT & the Tennessee Kids, he performed material off Parts 1 and 2 of The 20/20 Experience, the latter of which was recently certified platinum. He also dug into his catalog with hits like “Like I Love You” and “Señorita,” plus a cover of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison,” complete with choreography.

At one point, he spotted his friend Jimmy Fallon in the audience. “Hey Jimmy, #Wasted… #DoYouTapeTomorrow, #IHopeNot,” he joked in reference to their “Late Night” skit.

The global tour travels across the U.S. and Canada through March before heading to Europe in the spring.

Watch JT bring his “20/20 Experience” to Brooklyn on opening night.

Video: Justin Timberlake – ‘TKO’

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake gets knocked out cold in the cinematic video for his single “TKO.” In the seven-minute visuals, directed by Ryan Reichenfeld, the pop star takes “kill me with that coo-coochie-coochie-coo” to a whole new level. He tries to make love to his heartless girlfriend, played by Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough, but gets the cold shoulder.

She turns down his advances and after a steamy make-out session in the kitchen, she hits him over the head with a frying pan. He is dragged through the desert on the back of a truck while she sits in the driver’s seat, but only one of them makes it out alive.

The Timbaland-produced song is the second single off Timberlake’s No. 1 album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.

His “20/20 Experience World Tour” kicks off November 6 in New York.

Watch JT face some cruel and unusual punishment at the hands of his twisted lover.
