Does it bother anyone else that Dove keeps calling ‘Dumplin’ her movie or her project?: like I realize that she’s in the movie, but they way she’s posting about and phrasing things makes her sound like she’s the star. for those of you who don’t know, from Wikipedia: “Willowdean, nicknamed "Dumplin’" by her mother and called "Will" by her friends, is an overweight teenager that has always felt that she was comfortable with her body and herself. She doesn't care that her mother was a teen beauty queen or that people have poked fun at her for her weight. All of that changes when she meets Bo, a handsome boy her age that has expressed interest in dating her. Suddenly Will is full of insecurities and can't bring herself to date him out of fear of what others would say. In order to prove to her self-worth, Will has decided to enter and win the Miss Teen Blue Bonnet Pageant. However, as the date of the pageant approaches, Will finds that it's not that easy to take part in a pageant - especially after her best friend Ellen decides to enter.” This is obviously not a film Dove is staring in. She doesn’t even play Will’s best friend, she plays some pageant girl named Bekah Cotter who is ‘the favorite to win’ because she’s oh so pretty but you just can’t bring yourself to hate her because she’s nice too! No seriously that’s the character description. Sounds very Mary Sue to me.
But despite Dove nowhere near being the star of this movie, the internet can’t stop gushing over her and practically ignoring the actual star Danielle Macdonald. Of course that’s not Dove’s doing, it just reflects that our society will still ogle at the thin, pretty, blonde girl while ignoring the literal star of the movie. Heres the trailer, Dove doesn’t speak in it at all and any shot she’s in lasts half a second/she’s in the back doing nothing: https://youtu.be/k86KDFh_q6E
and here’s a article about it lmao: And literally just the other day Dove posted a throwback to when she played Amber in Hairspray and said that Amber (racist, bullies the fat main character) is a mood. It’s a clip of her singing Cooties, a song dedicated to Tracy where she calls Tracy and her mother ugly and fat. but maybe I’m looking too far into it 🤷♀️
Dove is so fake woke. Though I do guess being faux woke is better than being outwardly nasty, at least she’s spreading good messages to her young fans. But I feel like in a few years a video or screenshot is gonna surface of her saying the n word or treating someone like shit. Disney covers that shit up real good but celeb videos like that always find a way to pop up eventually.
Also this lmao: https://youtu.be/90ZZPh-XzR8
brilliant way of describing it, I completely agree. My issue with her has always been her lack of honesty when she has all these little kids looking up to her, but the more I look into it, the more I feel bad for her rather that angry at her. I remember Billy Ray Cyrus said he wished they’d never done Hannah Montana, Disney is fucked in what they did to people like Miley. I’m really interested to see who Dove will be as a person and influencer once she’s out from under Disney’s shadow, which I’m guessing will be soon, since they wrapped Descendants 3 and she’s almost 23. But it’s probably hard to break out of your contracts unless you do something like 2013 Miley, which I doubt she’d want to do.
Thoughts? I personally think that musical theatre is actually one of Dove’s stronger suits, but idk if she’s off Broadway material lol??? Like what I mean is she has a good voice but she’s not a good actress, she overreacts to everything which, while you have to be big in your movements when you’re on stage instead of in front of a camera, you still have to be a good actor and she just isn’t. And now she’s supposed to be playing lead in the Clueless musical? these videos are from her performances in Mama Mia! and Hairspray Live, again, pretty good voice (not the best in my opinion, pretty sure a lot of these roles are just another case of her mom and Disney handing her connections) but her acting in these is just really bad in my opinion. The overreacting works a little for Amber, since she’s supposed to be a ditzy, racist, mean girl, and I know Cher from Clueless isn’t the brightest, but I can’t see Dove fitting into that role. Considering musical theatre is mainly about how your voice sounds, I think Dove was a really poor choice. Cher has that valley accent but her voice isn’t high pitched, at least not as much as Dove’s. And when Dove speaks in her roles it’s very fake, so high pitched compared to her normal voice which is lower, not believable at all. Take a look: Mama Mia!: https://youtu.be/4jCq45Yr7cY https://youtu.be/EDbQiZjvbBw
Hairspray Live! (It was hard to find much but this small clip pretty much sums up her acting abilities): https://youtu.be/RQFrfbkknXY You can see how much she overreacts in some of these gifs:
(Can we just acknowledge how different her face is in the two photos above and below?)
granted though, this is Disney, and they’re looking for pretty people who can hold kids attention in their relatively decent movies, they’re not looking for the next Meryl Streep but my point still stands. Dove is an Instagram model who got lucky because her mom had connections and she got into Disney before her plastic surgery was too extreme, even though now it is ridiculously obvious she’s gotten work done now. anyway I guess we’ll see. Her ‘awful’ ex Ryan McCartan is on the Heathers album and I don’t like him but I like the music, so we’ll see if I can tolerate what hopefully won’t be the butchering of a movie I enjoy.
(“mom, dad, can I have $35?” “Why?” “So I can buy a hoodie with a girl’s name on it that the majority of the public won’t even know who it’s referring to when they read it. Also can you make it $50? I want a calendar with her face plastered all over it so I can feel bad about myself.”)
Also she says that “a large portion of proceeds will go to various charities” but she doesn’t specify which charities lol. And usually people will specify wether it’s 10% or 30% of the proceeds, unless it’s real not that “large” of an amount and she’s pocketing most of the money, which there’d be nothing wrong with that, unless she’s lying about it 👀
The only reason I have any kind of problem with Dove is because she feeds this to kids. She’s not different than the Kardashian’s when it comes to plastic surgery, but I feel no need to hate on Kim K because of her surgeries. And she’s no different from Jennifer Lawrence in her ‘lol aren’t I SO relatable??’ persona, but I feel no need to hate on JLaw. But Kim K doesn’t claim to be a role model for little girls (or anyone for that matter). But Dove is a Disney star and knows who her fans are. She’s talked about how much she loves being a role model and has even talked about how messed up it is for people to lie about their appearance because it can feed a negative image into little girl’s minds (“It made me so personally upset,” she said. “That’s a blatant lie. That’s not OK. That’s not a role model. I realized that if I was going to be a role model then I needed to live like the girls that I needed when I was young.”) I can honestly say that I’d most likely be a fan if she just didn’t feed such a warped image to little girls. She can say ‘love yourself!’ all she wants but that can only go so far, little girls need a role model who looks like a real person, forget the ps, what’s done there is done, I’m talking about the photoshop. I know Dove has said she struggled with an eating disorder and with loving herself, but if she so badly wants to be a role model then she needs to stop. Literally no one will hate her for it. All she has to do is stop, she’s doesn’t have to talk about it but if she decides to then she’ll get even more love for being so honest about a real issue that’s online. Just last week she did a video with seventeen (https://youtu.be/Y0Jwbj1zTh0) and towards the end she talks about how loving herself is a constant struggle. But Dove, if you’re reading this, nows your chance. You can’t reverse a nose job but you don’t need to. Just be honest. Stop photoshopping. Be a role model.
She seems like she could be a really nice person (even with the bully rumors, she would’ve been a kid, and people can change) so I’m just hoping she at the very least stops with the photoshop. I would be such a fan if she was a little more honest with her fans and herself.
And I know I haven’t said the best things on here about her, but I’m in a weirdly happy state and I’m just trying to spread some good vibes n shit, I know I’m a raging hypocrite lol
youre right! She carries a lot more in her legs than the photos on her ig appear. It’s not a bad thing, she’s got a great body unphotoshopped, but that’s why is so sad. She can’t even see how good she looks after working her ass off at a gym and tons of ps. :/
(Hope you can see the gifs moving?) Celebface caught her again. It’s really sad that she’s so insecure but I’m more angry than sorry for her because of all the young fans she’s pressuring with her literally impossible beauty standards. And yeah it’s not her responsibility to make sure every fan is doing fine, but she herself has said how she loves being a role model to young girls. Some role model, Dove. That’s literally the only reason I give a shit about anything she does, is because she’s actually dangerously affecting little girls when she does this. Yeah, the Kardashian’s and supermodels photoshop to hell and back, but their main fan bases are children, and they aren’t claiming to be role models. This girl is a Disney star and no one expects this of her so her little fan girls think she’s natural and feel horrible that they don’t look like her. It’s messed up. Also I really have to wonder how she has time to meditate or whatever she does when she’s actually spending so much time photoshopping her pictures! She goes on and on about how she hates social media and that celebrities don’t matter but she eats up whatever scrap of fame and attention she can get, and spends so much time photoshopping for insta and posting on insta and Twitter that I really doubt she follows any of her own spiritual philosophy.
Alsoooo... this King Kong Magazine shoot is DEFINITELY gonna be her way out of Disney lol 👀 look at this shit:
And these (courtesy of @alexkazemi on instagram): (Again, hope you can see the gifs moving)
this photo shoot actually looks disturbing af. She looks like she got kidnapped and it’s some kind of snuff film or like it’s from one of those websites where they show actual dead bodies and other messed up shit lmao. Definitely trying to get away from Disney now that D3 is done. Nothing wrong with that, but I can’t really see her career taking off past Instagram influencer/part time singer. She keeps gaining tons of followers and is being pampered by makeup artist that Kim K herself follows on instagram yet if you asked anyone over 15 (at MOST) if they knew who she is most would say no. She’s definitely gonna be stuck being fake woke on insta.
yep. Not only does she get most if not all of her acting roles handed to her by Disney, meaning she’s yet to really have to make any actual effort in her career (compare that to Zendaya who talks about how she goes to casting calls where they’re looking for white girls to try and prove them wrong and create more diversity) but she also has stated multiple times that she’s never had a single acting lesson and it shows lmao. Sure some people have a natural energy to them but they still have to learn and perfect their craft, some of the best actors in Hollywood had or even continue to get lessons. Once Dove is done with Disney maybe she’ll get a few roles since she is popular with kids, but it’ll never be anything serious, nothing that would actually break her into major Hollywood productions. • She’s had nearly every role handed to her • She’s never had and acting lesson (and isn’t that good in the first place) • She literally looks like an Instagram model which you’d be surprised to find that Hollywood ironically wants more natural looking people to make their stories about real life. (Ex: Margot Robbie, Emma Stone, Natalie Portman - all super gorgeous, but they still look like real people, unlike Dove) • The more famous she gets the more she’ll be exposed for all the shitty things she’s done I imagine she’ll be successful with her music (I don’t think it’ll be on Ariana or Demi’s (etc.) level but she’ll probably have a couple of bops and then end up in one of those ‘Whatever Happened to - ?’ videos.
exactly. Dove doesn’t do anything except for the make-a-wish stuff she HAS to do because it’s set up by Disney. Sure, I know that it’s her money. No one has to give money. But when it’s a celebrity who has millions- possibly even BILLIONS of dollars, they do not need that much when there are other people in the world that are starving. So many rich people could literally end world hunger just by donating a small fraction of their money, while still remaining rich af lmao, but that’s a whole other conversation. Dove is definitely well off, and for someone like her who *claims* to be an empath, who if you look hard enough you can find quotes from her mouth going on and on about how hard it is to be an empath because she really feels for other people, you’d think she’d be dishing out money left and right to charities or AT LEAST sharing it on the social media sites she’s constantly using to encourage others to help donate. But nope. She makes one post about her contractually obligated make-a-wish visit to show us what a good person she is and then starts flexing on everyone with her expensive ass trips and tries to sell her young fans weird hair vitamins to spend their parents money on lmao. I can’t wait until she either fades into irrelevance or gets famous enough that more people start exposing her crap.
Ooh new topic I’m sorry y’all but my sister watches Shameless and it reminded me that Dove guest stared on it back in 2012 and the difference in her appearance freaks me out everytime like damn:
how. tf. is. that. the same. person?? Like damn she has changed so much.. its like how is this the same person?:
One thing I will admit tho is that she has amazing skin and I want to know how the hell she does. Cause it seemed pretty clear even before she was getting a whole bunch of ps. Hmm...
ALSO- 20.1 million followers? I don’t thinks so, she popular but not that popular, especially because she literally just hit 20 mil the other day. I know most of her fans are kids and a lot of kids have Instagram, but she’s 100% buying followers lmao.
this is legit how Kylie Jenner looked before she got her fillers taken out (looks like she’s gotten them done again, idk not the point) just the way the lines on the face form (especially around the mouth) it’s very awkward and artificial. You can especially notice it in the candid with Sofia- Sofia is a few years OLDER than Dove, yet Sofia looks younger and more natural because she doesn’t have those botox lines. I know her fans are young but I’m still really surprised how even on other Instagrams (like for magazines or photographers) no one mentions how obvious it is that she got injections. Look at these comparisons between Dove and Kylie: Thought I’d throw these ones in lol, Dove also likes to advertise fake stuff on her Instagram to her young impressionable fans, such a role model!!: Then compare that to their before photos:
(Dove had already had at least a nose job at this point but her lips are obviously different) Also this isn’t meant to be a dig at Kylie or anything (at least she’s admitted to getting fillers) it’s only to compare their faces that are eerily similar now... imho if Dove wanted to get away with lying about plastic surgery, she should’ve stopped when she looked like this: these are screenshots from the video + one of the many comments from her young fans: (she captioned it ‘call me margot tenenbaum’ but idk why, it’s a reference to the movie ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ but I’ve never seen it, if someone gets why she captioned it that lmk) Dove the Role Model™ has no time to reply to stuff like this, no comforting her fans or assuring them that they’re beautiful, she says nothing: And I know what you’re thinking, it could just be a matter that Dove doesn’t read or reply to comments, but nope. She seems to have plenty of time for this: Dove is 100% still suffering from her eating disorder, she been posting photos and videos a LOT lately of her stomach, she also always posts insta stories with her workout regime:
She’s 22. Born January of 1996, though there’s a conspiracy going around that she lied and is actually older but I personally don’t believe that one lol.
She said she was Scottish and then Russian lol?? Never heard that one, now she goes on about how French she is lmao. Though it’s possible for her to be all three I’m sure there’s some context about her lying if someone called her out about it?
Exactly. You shouldn’t be forced to talk about your struggles but Dove has no problem talking very vaguely about her obviously fake struggles. She never elaborates on what exactly ‘very dark’ means when referring to her childhood, she doesn’t say what the bullies did or said to her, she doesn’t even offer coping mechanisms or talk about how important it is to actually get help when you have a mental illness. She only always insists it happened and says she struggled with anxiety but doesn’t tell her young fans how to actually deal with things like anxiety except ‘happy thoughts uwu!!’ And then when happy thoughts alone don’t work her fans will be left feeling hopeless. Not impossible that she’s struggled with feeling anxious before, but a lot of people have and that doesn’t mean she has anxiety. I’ve been very lucky to have been able to support myself through a lot of my issues, but I still struggle like crazy and I’m seeking professional help cause I know I need it, happy thoughts have helped somewhat but they’re not a cure and Dove has no grasp of this: lmao I don’t welcome negativity, I hate negativity, I don’t “allow” it to effect me, it just does. Ironically, it’s insane how Dove’s mind works, but I guess that’s how anyone’s mind would work when everything in life is served to you on a silver platter.
