Political Grammys – Joy Villa wears “Make America Great Again Dress”!
We all knew the Grammys were going to get political but we didn’t expect this! Of course the commentary has to have a negative spin as seen by this CAPTION of the photo.

Singer Joy Villa made quite the political statement at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.
The performer, who was not nominated at the show and was one of the first guests to arrive, initially walked the red carpet outside of Los Angeles’ Staples Center in a white cape. She then did a dramatic costume change, whipping off the draped fabric to reveal a form-fitting red-white-and-blue dress emblazoned with President Donald Trump’s signature slogan.
Villa’s look read “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” down the bodice and featured red stripes and white stars. The back of the dress was bedazzled with large sparkling letters reading “TRUMP.”
Viewers immediately took notice of Villa’s questionable fashion choice, weighing in on the dress via social media.
Of course the media re-posts all the NEGATIVE SOCIAL MEDIA RESPONSES.

It didn’t take long for the Grammys to turn political.
Little-known artist Joy Villa — who was one of the first to arrive on Sunday’s red carpet — made a major political statement when she unveiled a gown emblazoned with President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make American Great Again.
The 25-year-old singer, who isn’t up for any awards, arrived on the carpet in a white gown but quickly shed it to reveal her Trump-inspired outfit. The back of the red, white and blue dress reads “Trump” on the train.
The shocking get-up hit a sour note with some viewers, many of whom flocked to social media to call Villa out.
