Joy Villa is back at the 2019 Grammy Awards — and she’s making a political statement once again. The singer, who wore a “Choose Life” gown to last year’s show, with a rainbow painting of a fetus on it, walked the red carpet Sunday in a “Build the Wall” dress.
When she first showed up at the event, Villa, a self-described feminist and Trump supporter, appeared to be dressed as Lady Liberty, in a silver off-the-shoulder look and crown.
However, she removed the outer layer and revealed a white dress with a brick wall motif painted on it and “Build the Wall” in red graffiti on the back. She wrapped wire around her shoulders to look like barbed wire and carried a “Make America Great Again” bag.
Villa took to Instagram to share her motivation for the outfit.
“I don’t listen to haters. I listen to truth,” she wrote in the caption. “Building the wall will cut down crime, protect children from being trafficked and stop the 1 in 3 women from being sexually assaulted tying [sic] to get through illegally. It’s a humanitarian crisis. I support life. I support protection. I SUPPORT THEWALK!”
She added in another post that she doesn’t “care what anyone thinks.”
She also noted that the look was made by Desi Designs Couture. The brand shared a disclaimer on Instagram, writing that the “views, thoughts, and opinions expressed by my clients are not necessarily the same as my views, thoughts, and opinions.”
Last year, Villa, who gave up a child for adoption, opted to make a pro-life statement with her gown.
The year before, Villa also used her look to send a message, with a MAGA gown.
