Dove Cameron Opens Up About Original Music Video Idea for 'Breakfast'

Dove Cameron is opening up about leaving a different version of the “Breakfast” music video on the editing room floor!

The 27-year-old singer and actress dropped a video for the song back in August 2022 that showed her switching gender norms and highlighting societal struggles that women were facing at the time and still to this day.

With women’s and abortion rights at stake across the US, Dove felt like she needed to do something to express her feelings.

See what she said…

“What basically had happened was I filmed another music video for ‘Breakfast’ first before I left for Vancouver [to shoot Schmigadoon! season two],” she told Marc Malkin on his Just for Variety podcast. “And it was good. It was very sexy, pop girly. It was adequate and I liked it. But when we were working on the edit, the news of Roe vs. Wade broke, and I was in Canada. I was just feeling so desolate. I hadn’t felt that low in a while. I had no hope or faith in our government.”

Dove‘s label then asked if she wanted do a new video for the song and what she released was the result.

“I was feeling incredibly disillusioned watching the recent SCOTUS ruling and I couldn’t wrap my head around making a music video at a time when I felt so desolate,” she shared in a statement when releasing the visual. “With this video, I want to show the disturbing contrast between stylized femininity and masculine power and the gender stereotypes that plague our social commentary.”

Dove added, “This is a video to remind us that ‘how it’s always been’ should never be a reason for desensitization or upholding broken system. Hopefully by re-contextualizing these familiar scenes, this video will encourage people to vote for a world where we leave gender discrimination as a thing of the past and stop bringing the past into the present.”

Speaking of music, Dove has a new song coming out NEXT Friday (April 14) with Diplo and Johnny Blue Skies.
