Dove Cameron last night had tears pouring down her cheeks as a simple CVS shopping trip was documented on her Instagram. The 25-year-old actress and singer is fresh from marking what would have been “The Descendants” co-star Cameron Boyce’s 22nd birthday – former Disney star Boyce died tragically from epilepsy in 2019, with Dove yesterday delivering an emotional tribute. Shortly after the post, the “Powerpuff Girls” actress updated again, this time at CVS, but still seemingly torn apart. See it below.
Scroll for the photos. Dove, also fresh from saying she was afraid to come out as queer as she fronts Gay Times, was touting self-acceptance and self-care, here, even it means crying. Posting for her 42.6 million followers, the blonde opened in selfie mode, wet-haired, and gazing into the camera with sad eyes, tears, and in a black face mask, also wearing a denim jacket.
A quick swipe to the right showed Dove’s purchases, these largely art-based as they included Crayola markers and coloring equipment.
Dove, who peeped her sneaker-clad feet as she showed what she’d bought, then shared a little self-care via child-friendly coloring, with her caption confirming she’d been to CVS.
“Reminder to take care of yourself whatever that means to you today & that it is ok to cry at cvs,” she told fans for a total 949,000 likes overnight. “If u only knew how many times I’ve cried at CVS,” the top reply reads. Swipe below for the full gallery – scroll for more photos.
The support, immense, has now brought Dove into her own comments section as she wrote: “Let’s all meet @ cvs for a group cry.”
Fans know exactly what’s up, though. Hours earlier, the “Liv & Maddie” alum had updated with videos and photos showing her with Boyce, who died aged 20. She even shared a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt she says he “slept in,” wishing it would be able to smell like him again. See the photo after the jump.
Taking to her caption, Dove had written: “You should be 22 today. i am wearing your old shirt , the one i think you slept in mostly. i wish it still smelled like you. i hope it still holds your dna, some piece of you. i close my eyes when i imagine the same place that covered your collar bones and heart now cover mine.”
