The boy wonder claims the crown from last year's winner Jack White...

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is officially is the coolest person on the planet according to the NME COOL LIST, beating the likes of BEYONCE, THE STROKES, Dizzee Rascal and Distillers to the top spot.

Now in its second year, The NME Cool List features incredible 38 new entries and a fantastic array of female icons. Also on the list are White Stripes’ Brody Dalle and [a][/a]’ Meg White. Kylie, and Christina Aguilera also all make it into the definitive list of cool.

Conor McNicholas, editor of the NME, said: “The NME Cool List is a reflection of how exciting the music scene is right now. Whether it is wearing the right clothes, being magnetically charismatic or deliberately trashing their talent for the sake of it, all of the entries in this years list have one thing in common – the X factor.”


Meanwhile the ‘Fool List’ names and shames those that have been anything but cool over the past 12 months.

To get the definitive list pick up the year’s coolest NME in London today (November 25) and tomorrow nationwide (26).
