Although Villa has been nothing if not consistent in her support of the president and his policies, some were surprised to see her still wearing outfits in his honor considering in December of of 2017 she accused Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski of sexual misconduct. She accessorized with a "Make America Great Again" purse and barbed wire.
But, as the musician went on to research the current US president, she soon became a supporter. "This is my Make America Great Again purse and dress is by Desi Designs Couture, and it represents the wall".
Unsurprisingly, many viewers watching the Grammys red carpet coverage at home were not too pleased seeing Villa and Rebel's outfit choices, as they took to social media to air their grievances.
Singer Joy Villa returns with the Grammys with another political statement.
Along with photos showing the dress from both sides, Villa tweeted, "I don't care what anyone thinks". Rebel, a bixsexual, has been an avid supporter of President Trump. He walked the red carpet in a blue jacket that read "Keep America Great" on its front with "Trump" on its back (via THR). (70% of heroin is from Mexico) More illegal women getting sexually assaulted (1 in 3 who try to make it in)?
"I'm part-Latina, I'm black", Villa said. I support life. I support protection.
When speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Villa said wearing controversial costumes at high-profile events provide her an "opportunity to show the world who I am". She and Trump want to "secure" the southern border (and not the northern border) because of who it will keep out. "I support what the president says about building the wall, so that's what this dress represents", she also said. Though the designer ensured followers her views were not the same, she praised the design and wrote: "We are all different and we belong." on her Instagram.
