GRAMMY GALLERY 3: THE REVENGE

Actually, Revenge Has Nothing to Do With It, But We Like the Way That Sounds.

 

Grammy Expozier

 

Columbia EVP/GM Joel Klaiman suggests breakout artist (and Song of the Year nominee) Hozier pen a follow-up called "Take Me to Schul," which would chronicle a Jewish lad's forbidden desire for a BLT. Seen kleibing serious naches are (l-r) Klaiman, Columbia ruler Rob Stringer, Hozier, Jordin Sparks and John Mayer.

 

Charlie the Virgo

Republic chief Monte Lipman, Co-Chair Avery Lipman, EVP Charlie Walk and A&R honcho Wendy Goldstein trade a few verses with artist Sage the Gemini. Later, the rapper gifted all the execs with their own zodiac belt buckles.


Cage Match

RCA CEO Peter Edge and prexy/COO Tom Corson get Alternative with artists Cage the Elephant. No elephants were harmed in the captioning of this photo.


It's a Mitzvah

"Tell me, rabbi," says Capitol Music Group EVP/GM Greg Thompson to legendary producer/Blue Note head Don Was, "What does the Torah say about consuming pork in a spring roll in a Chinese restaurant at Christmastime, if one doesn't know the pork is there? Is it still trayf?" "Greg," Was replied, "I'm not a rabbi, and you're not Jewish." "I know," said Thompson, "but I thought it might help my career." Later Billboard ran a feature on Don's sandals.


A World of Fun

Epic topper L.A. Reid brings the Grammy fabulousness to a photo op with Black Magnetic/Epic trophy-winners A Great Big World and Janelle Monae, with whose Wondaland production company he just announced a label deal. Shortly after this was snapped, AGBW's Ian Axel busted out his breakdance moves.
