On My Ipod Emmy Rossum

The 26-year-old actress has a major YA-franchise movie ('Beautiful Creatures', out Feb. 14), a new album ('Sentimental Journey', out now), an acclaimed TV show ('Shameless', Sundays, 9 p.m. on Showtime) — and eclectic taste in music.

John Lwqia ''Afternoon in Paris''

''He's a jazz pianist that my mom played all the time when I was a kid. From the ages of, like, 3 to 12, this was constantly on in my house. It reminds me of growing up, that cozy feeling of smelling warm lasagna in the oven.''

M83 ''Wait''

''I listen to this band a lot with [costar] Justin Chatwin on the Shameless set. We'll play this song in the makeup trailer in the morning, and it'll get us all pumped up and Chicago-feisty.''

''The Crew-Cuts Sh-Boom''

''It's freaking adorable! It's so happy and uplifting, it makes my heart feel like it's Valentine's Day. Songs aren't written like this anymore.''

Drake ''Marvin's Room''

''I think I have this on a playlist called 'Hotel Music' because I was listening to a lot of Drake when I was making Beautiful Creatures. My costar Thomas Mann had both Drake CDs on heavy rotation, and this became my favorite song. I can even do the rap — although I bleep myself out. He's kind of the only rapper on a routine rotation on my iPod.''
