Singer-songwriter Joy Villa graced the 2017 GRAMMY Awards red carpet on Sunday night in a Donald Trump-inspired gown that turned heads.
The 25-year-old adopted Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” for her navy blue dress with red, silver and white detailing. The train sports “TRUMP” in shining letters.
She defended her outfit choice on Instagram: “Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don’t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree. See the person over the politics, carry yourself with dignity, always. Life is made to be lived, so go boldly and give no effs!”
Reactions on social media were mixed, needless to say. In hundreds of tweets, some called the singer “brave” and others were left wondering why she chose to wear the dress.
Since her red carpet appearance, Villa’s music sales have skyrocketed. The singer’s “I Make the Static” jumped to the top of Amazon’s top digital paid albums, and the EP reached No. 7 on the iTunes top album chart, Fox News reports.
