    Molly Lambert

    Further proof that Bruno Mars is the hardest-working man in show business. I hope to god Ronnie Hudson got royalties from Mark Ronson for having written "West Coast Poplock," from which this song borrows liberally, with shades of Kool &...

  6. Songs of the Week: Getting Weird With ILoveMakonnen, Friedrich Li...

    Molly Lambert

    ILoveMakonnen, the Harry Nilsson of R&B, gets the remix treatment from Drake. The video is suitably weird, and the song has such a nostalgic feel that I'm already getting nostalgic thinking about how nostalgic we'll eventually be for th...

  10. Songs of the Week: Rich Gang, E-40, the Empty Hearts, and More

    Molly Lambert

    This song features literally a full minute of Birdman talking before anyone starts rapping. That gives you plenty of time to prepare for "Givenchy" to really start, but you're still not ready for the plush-leather-interior beat and &ld...

  11. What Prince Giveth

    Molly Lambert

    Prince has always known the value of ambiguity, the power of the tease. His lyrics can be raw and revealing, but he's coy with the press and protects his privacy. Throughout his career, Prince has asked provocative questions -- "Am I black ...

  14. Miley Cyrus Will Never Learn, Will She?

    Molly Lambert

    There's a quote from America's Next Top Model Cycle 4 that comes up in my mind a lot, from possibly the most famous moment in the show's history. When a contestant named Tiffany was eliminated after giving up on a challenge halfway thr...
