The passenger seat turned into the hot seat for Oscar-nominated actress and musician, Juliette Lewis, whose musical tastes were put to the test in the latest episode of Suzie Riemer‘s Carversations web series.

After Lewis’ mother mistook Riemer, who previously carted celebrities like Kristen Stewart around for interviews in her car, for an Uber driver, the August: Osage County actress buckles in and poses for a quick selfie with her dog, Teddy.

“I’m in a bad mood, do you want to surf the radio with me?” Lewis asks before jamming to a few seconds of a Michael Jackson song. Riemer then turns the dial to “Energy” by Drake. “Oh God, no! Kill me now!” Lewis responds.

After cycling through a few more tracks (No Doubt’s cover of “It’s My Life”, Alessia Cara’s “Here,” and Travi$ Scott’s “Antidote” also make appearances), Lewis, frontwoman of the rock band Juliette and the Licks, also discussed her upcoming EP. “I’m going to release music in the summer,” she told Riemer. “I want to release this EP that I did with Isabella Summers, who’s in Florence + the Machine. She produced it!”

Lewis previously announced a set of European tour dates that will precede the EP. The band’s last album, Four on the Floor, was released in 2006 ahead of a 2009 hiatus, during which Lewis released a solo record, Terra Incognita.

A documentary about Lewis’ return to music, Hard Lovin’ Woman, is set to premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival in April.

Watch Lewis’ full Carversations episode, which includes bonus relationship and texting advice (“Get the F— off your phone and get some face-to-face time!”) and a man allegedly pulling his car through the street on a leash, in the video above.
