The 'Take Back The Night' singer says having passion is much more important than being cool.

Justin Timberlake has declared that he is "not cool" while insisting he has always made career choices without considering his street credibility.

The 'Mirrors' singer has urged fans not to worry about doing things that are seen as "cool", and says they should instead just focus on being passionate about what they do.

"Listen, I'm not cool," Justin reveals in the new issue of GQ US. "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no.

"Don't be cool, be passionate!" the 'Take Back The Night' singer advises. "Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be p****d. Be happy. Be sad.

"Because being cool would have meant I passed up on those opportunities."
