I don't need any publicity to show the people the works that I am doing now. Maybe when I come there, [their shows] they will just ask any questions when I am also brave, bold, and daring in answering questions. I saw that in some television talk shows some of the questions are obscene. Celebrities have the right to be furious in guesting to their shows. If I were asked those kinds of questions I will tell them I didn't come here to be insulted. When I am in the public eye, I was not ruined. I left the limelight still respected by many, now that I am retired will I ruin the image I left in their minds?"
