Because, even though Shamrock Holdings acquired, Scooter team will continue to profit from her master for many years to come. Although she hopes to cooperate with Shamrock Holdings, if Scooter appears, she is forced to say no.
She also added that she is now embarking on re-recording the entire master and did not forget to "tease" with fans that there will be many surprises in these new products.
Although she understood that recording like that would more or less reduce its value, but it made her feel proud when listening to her old music, while also helping fans feel no guilt or concern that Scooter gets rich every time she listens to old albums.
