Dove Cameron Shares Advice She Got From Selena Gomez When First Starting on Disney Channel

Dove Cameron is opening up about when she first started out on the Disney Channel.

Earlier this month at a Jingle Ball stop, the soon-to-be 27-year-old “Girl Like Me” singer revealed some advice she got from another Disney alum – Selena Gomez!

The actress and singer shared that then network president Gary Marsh insisted she go meet the Wizards of Waverly Place star and talk about how her life is going to change, after being cast on Liv and Maddie.

“She was really kind. She had me over to her house. I had never even done anything, I wasn’t doing interviews or anything. We sat at her kitchen table for hours, I think she offered to make me toast,” Dove shared with Buzzfeed.

“She gave me some advice on what not to do, and definitely things to do. For a couple months following that I would text her in a panic being like, ‘I don’t know what to do, I’ve never done this before!’ And she’s like, ‘Be yourself, everybody wants you to be yourself. You’re gonna kill it.’ That was really important to me,” she continued.

Earlier this year, Dove actually opened up about feeling like an outlier in the “Disney machine,” and not feeling like the other Disney girls.

“I never had that moment where I was like, ‘I am a Disney girl.’ I never looked at Miley or Demi or Selena or Zendaya or Bella or anybody — Hilary Duff or anybody that came before me — I never looked at them and thought, you and me — same,” she told the LA Times. “I was always the strange outlier who doesn’t belong and who will never fit in. I had huge impostor syndrome. I felt like I was wearing a rubber mask or something.”

Dove added, “So I don’t really look to anybody else for a roadmap. I mean, this whole narrative that I was on Disney and then found my way out with a pop song, it was a total f— accident.”

If you missed it, Dove recently hung out with a couple of other very popular LGBTQ+ singers.

This weekend, Dove will be performing during the Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest!
