The singer is back to her red-carpet shenanigans with another pro-Trump dress, Variety reports.
At the 2019 Grammys, Villa wore a dress with the U.S./Mexico border wall as its theme. The dress' debut came just weeks after negotiations over the wall led to a partial government shutdown that left thousands of people worried about their finances.
As CNN notes, the president has made a number of false, racist and nativist statements about the wall. But even xenophobia can be fashionable, right?
Villa insists the dress is an extension of her personal beliefs.
“This is what I believe in,” Villa told Variety. “I believe in the president, I just released an album called ‘Home Sweet Home’ and it’s all about my love for America, barbed wire, I’m having fun with it.”
Last year, Villa wore a white anti-abortion praise dancer frock.
In 2017, she turned a MAGA flag into a dress and the year before she walked the Grammys carpet dressed like a sexy traffic cone.
Villa told The Hollywood Reporter she used to be a liberal but she “was very conservative in my heart” due to her upbringing. Eventually she decided Trump needed public support.
"I was a secret Trumper for months," she continued. "When I decided to wear the Trump dress, I figured that most people would try to ignore me, they'd be so upset. But the rebel in me was like, 'I have to come out and support the president.'"
She blames her attention-seeking ways on her theater background.
"I grew up in theater, so I've always used costume as a way to express myself," Villa said. "It's an opportunity to show the world who I am on the red carpet, which to me is the same as a stage. I approach it as a show. I want to 'wow' people."
In case her fashion statement wasn't clear, the singer later reaffirmed her support for Trump on Twitter.
I don’t care what anyone thinks. I 100% support the wall & our President @realDonaldTrump. Do you want more drugs brought in? (70% of heroin from Mexico) More illegal women getting sexually assaulted (1 in 3)? More children being trafficked? (Thousands a year) because I DO NOT! pic.twitter.com/ErdOJhD5IN— Joy Villa (@Joy_Villa) February 11, 2019
