Whether it’s the tried and true holiday standards, or a fresh crop of originals, Christmas tunes are awesome.

Shayna Leigh gets in on the Holiday cheer with a warm, catchy Christmas pop original “Wake Me When I...

ADL national director Abraham H. Foxman commented: "Nicki Minaj's new video disturbingly evokes Third Reich propaganda and constitutes a new low for pop culture's exploitation of Nazi...
