BE STILL, MY iHEART

These photos from the recent iHeartRadio Music Festival in Vegas bring the lifetime trade-shot totals of Tom Poleman and John Sykes to 25,000, entitling both to a complimentary entree at participating Chipotle restaurants with the purchase of an item of equal or greater value.

Why is Capitol promo boss Greg Marella (far right) beaming? It could be because of the chart success of Halsey and Lewis Capaldi and the forthcoming impact of the Sam Smith/Kim Petras streaming giant "Unholy." Or perhaps it's just because he's in this dreamy glam shot with Ryan Seacrest, Tom Poleman and John Sykes. Did the iHeart triumvirate autograph an 8x10 of this pic for Greg afterward? We could say, but we promised not to.


"Listen, bruh," suggests iHeart supremo Bob Pittman to Mad Decent/Columbia's Diplo, "what do you think about doing a sick remix of our Q3 financial report? I'm picturing something with, like, sitars and bagpipes, but, you know, you do you." Seen wishing they could turn us down in the mix are (l-r) Sykes, Pittman, Diplo and Poleman.


Capitol's Marcus Mumford poses with supermanager/mogul Irving Azoff, who requested the troubadour get cracking on a totally heartbreaking and intimate Nate 'n Al's jingle.


Big Loud/Mercury/Republic's country phenom Morgan Wallen finds himself in the year's surprise supergroup with Black Eyed Peas, Seacrest and pop icon Lionel Richie.

Warner's Rob Goldklang joins artists the Black Keys, Sykes and Poleman for this very Alternative photo op. Later, everyone enjoyed a Kombucha.


Seen hoisting a platinum plaque that was sturdy enough to serve as a table for a lavish brunch are (l-r) Seacrest, iHeart's Rob Miller, Mr. 305's Pitbull, Poleman, Sykes and iHeart's Marissa Morris.
