Every winter brings a cornucopia of new Christmas specials hoping to become your new holiday standard, and this year clothing brand H&M is getting into the act with their short film A Magical Holiday. No mere direct-to-video cash-in, A Magical Holiday stars Academy Award winner Jesse Williams and Nicki Minaj.

Taking place in some magical world where Williams and Minaj are a happy married couple,  the short features Williams coaxing his daughter through her bout of insomnia by making up a Christmas bedtime story as he goes along. Minaj and Williams work double-duty as characters in the tale, an epic quest for a little girl to stop Father Christmas’ evil brother.

This time of year is usually busy for Minaj, and this holiday season is no exception. After announcing last week she’s looking to open a restaurant of Trinidad cuisine in New York City, yesterday her track “Motorsport” with Migos and Cardi B was certified gold.

– Celebrating his Grammy nominations, JAY-Z had a revealing interview in the New York Times.

– Not all is good in Grammy-ville as Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest took to Instagram to vent his frustration with the group’s snubbing.

– Always mysterious, Frank Ocean is teasing us with another album.

– The new Eminem album Revival officially has a release date of December 15.
