'I was 19 I think. We shot the video and did a few performances, and one day after rehearsal she asked me to stay late.

'I was like, "Ahhh, am I getting fired?" And then Janet in her sweet little voice was like, "Would you wanna go on tour with me?" I just started screaming and jumping up and down.

'From there, I was one of her tour dancers for the All for You Tour, and danced for her for two years straight. I was a full Janet dancer.'
