business in their 20s, 30s and 40s . . . and he's not 80 . . . [Davis] is the

It really wasn't a good idea for Kelly to trash her boss, he may be old, but it is his job to decide what he thinks is going to sell on his label. If he is wrong, then he suffers, if he is right than his company is a success. I am unsure of her contract details, but if she is unhappy with his leadership, she can choose a new label.
