He added that although the publicity may only sometimes be negative, there is still much hype.

"That is not the case. Wendy Shay is one of the people; even though sometimes people want to bash her for some of the things she does, people have shown her a lot of love.
If you look across the landscape, she is the only female musician who has enjoyed much support because of Bullet's contacts in the entertainment industry."
