Singer Joy Villa decided to make a political statement at the Grammys on Sunday — she wore a “Make America Great Again” dress.
The performer walked on the red carpet outside of Los Angeles’ Staples Center wearing a white cape and a heart-shaped bag. She then took off the cape to reveal a form-fitting blue dress with Donald Trump’s signature slogan on it. And the back of her dress bore the word “TRUMP” in sparking letters.
People were quick to take notice — one user asked: “How much did he pay you?” However, some were quick to support her dress choice. One user said, “beautiful girl in a beautiful dress,” while another said, “this Joy Villa person has every right to wear a super ugly dress that says more about her poor character than anything else.”

The 25-year-old was not nominated at the 2017 Grammys. Her songs include “Empty” (2016), “Play” (2015) and “Get Your Freedom” (2014).
Many left-leaning artists were planning to make political statements at the Grammys, but few of them probably expected to see someone making an overly pro-Trump statement.
