Whoa! Singer Joy Villa took an unwanted message into anti-Trump territory, wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ emblazoned gown to the 2017 Grammy Awards. Here are five things to know about the controversial entertainer who definitely wanted to turn some heads Feb. 12.
1. Joy Villa pulled a fast-one on Grammy organizers by showing up in a white gown before whipping it off to show her pro-Donald Trump dress.
The 25-year-old must have known her message wasn’t going to be positively received among the Trump-hating crowd of artists, so she wore a white capelet gown on the red carpet. She then whipped it off to show a tight blue and white halter dress with his “Make America Great Again” slogan emblazoned down the side and the lettering “Trump” saluting him on the outfit’s train. Needless to say, it wasn’t a big hit at the event.
2. Joy claims she wore the controversial pro-Trump gown as an act of free expression.
After her big red-carpet reveal got the haters going, she took to her Instagram account to share her look with the world and wrote, “Sometimes you just gotta be free to express yourself. 😍✨🎶 thank you to all of my supporters and fellow believers. Life is about living free and loving it. Be your beautiful selves tonight.”
