Throughout 2013: All the Dancer Drama
This is where things really heat up: six months into Taylor's tour, the three aforementioned dancers were asked to join Katy again for her upcoming Prismatic World Tour. They all agreed and were essentially hired out from under Taylor. In an interview with The Examiner, which hit the web in December 2013, Lockhart spoke about it like it was no big deal: "It was a great experience and [Taylor]'s a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us. Obviously we were with Katy for two and a half years, she's like family to us, so we were, like, 'Absolutely.' We weren't really dancing in Taylor's tour anyway so I had got a little bored and I really wanted to do a promo tour.'' So, they left.
