PLACQUE ATTACK: This pic finds Republic's Ariana Grande celebrating the gold certification for digital sales of her single "The Way" f/Mac Miller with key mucky-mucks from her label. "You went gold in five weeks. That's amazing!" declared Chairman/CEO Monte Lipman. "And you hit #1 on the iTunes chart in eight hours. That's incredible!" crowed President/COO Avery Lipman. "And you wore three-inch heels to this photo shoot, which nobody warned me about. That's interesting," noted EVP Charlie Walk. Seen preparing for a free-form jam session are (l-r) Monte Lipman, Walk, Ariana and Avery Lipman.
