Singer wears 'Build the Wall' dress on Grammy red carpet

Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel at the 2019 Grammys

A ball of metal shaped like barbed wire was also attached to each strap on her dress.

Underneath a sparkly silver cape, Villa wore a black-and-white dress with a brick pattern. The ensemble designed by Desi Lee Allinger-Nelson of Desi Designs Couture was topped off with a shoulder piece that mimicked barbed wire seen on the top of security fences, and she held red handbag with the words "Make America Great Again".

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, she attempted to justify her bigoted style.

"Ignore it, keep preaching what I believe in and say, 'Hey listen, there's a place for all beliefs, '" she told the news outlet.

"I'm part Latina, I'm black and I believe in what the president is saying". This to me is a representation of that, in a very visual way. "Donald Trump, to me, represents alpha energy".

Villa wasn't the only star who hit the Grammys dressed in a Trump-inspired look. Despite Trump claiming there's a crisis, border crossings on the southern border have been decreasing for years.

At the 2017 Grammys she wore a blue dress, again bearing the MAGA slogan. However, she's primarily garnered headlines for her controversial and head-turning Grammys red carpet looks.

Our first amendment right is free speech, so we should all be able to weigh in and think about what the president does", she said, adding: "There's tons Trump supporters out there all of different colors. Do you want more drugs brought in?

"The amount of sheer hatred, racism & violent ignorance thrown at me for wearing my support would be heartbreaking if it weren't so over the top hilarious", Villa tweeted Monday. It's about protecting the people who are in this country. (70% of heroin is from Mexico) More illegal women getting sexually assaulted (1 in 3 who try to make it in)? More children being trafficked?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sunday, Villa showed up in a dress with the words "Build the wall" written on it.

"I was a secret Trumper for months", she continued.
