Kellyanne Conway Kneels On Oval Office Couch, Sparks Debate

Published by:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Photos of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway kneeling on an Oval Office couch with her shoes on have sparked an online debate about decorum in the executive mansion.

Conway is seen perched on her knees on the couch with her feet behind her in photos taken Monday while President Donald Trump met with leaders of historically black colleges and universities.

Some Twitter users were quick to highlight the photos as evidence of a lack of respect for the office from Conway and the Trump administration. Other users have countered with numerous photos of former President Barack Obama resting his feet on the office’s famed Resolute desk at various times during his eight years in office.

Conway has yet to weigh in on the criticism.

Music publishers have been cleared in a royalties lawsuit filed by the members of R&B group Dru Hill after a New York federal judge on Friday dismissed with prejudice the claims against them, reports Billboard.

Mark Andrews, James Green and Larry Anthony Jr. — a.k.a. Sisqo, Woody and Jazz, respectively — first sued Sony/ATV and EMI in 2015. According to their complaint, Dru Hill entered into a publishing agreement with Art of War Music Publishing in 1996, and in 2002 Art of War made an exclusive deal with EMI.

Andrews claims EMI paid more than $600,000 of his royalties to 27 Red Music, which is also a defendant in the suit, and he never received them. Anthony and Green claim EMI wrongfully paid at least $30,000 of their royalties to 27 Red.

Their second amended complaint, which was filed in June, is the one at issue in regard to this motion. The Dru Hill members sued EMI and Sony/ATV, which has administered the interests of EMI since its 2012 acquisition, for breach of implied contract and declaratory relief.

“[E]ven taking all allegations in the SAC to be true and disregarding entirely the first two complaints, Plaintiffs still fall short of stating a …read more

He talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his new single Gods from the BlackSUMMERS’ night album and what fans can expect when he takes the stage Labor Day weekend.

What does Gods mean?

“In love there’s always one person that loves the other person more…and it’s usually the person that loves the person the most…they are betrayed. The person that loves the least, because they have that ability to detach…they can be the God of your life.”
