Joy Villa dresses as Trump's border wall at 2019 Grammys

Joy Villa dresses as Trump's border wall at 2019 Grammys

Ricky Rebel is making a statement at the 2019 GRAMMYs.

Hollywood singer Joy Villa, known lately for her pro-Trump appearances at the Grammy Awards each year, did it again this year with a twist: she wore a barbed wire "Trump wall" to the red carpet in support of border security and legal immigration.

Joy proudly carried a "Make America Great Again" clutch and her dress was modeled after a border wall.

The glam-rock artist has always been an active supporter of President Trump and faced the backlash over it.




"Ignore it, keep preaching what I believe in and say 'Hey listen, there's a place for all beliefs.' There should be space. I know, I am one [and] I hang out with them".

In Rebel's Instagram post on Sunday, he declared, 'I'm a reflection of the 60+ Americans that voted for Donald Trump.' He hashtagged the post with 'MAGA'. Keep America great. That's right, baby.

While we're all for celebs taking a stand for what they believe in, we have to wonder if these stars even genuinely support Trump and his policies or if they're simply trying to cause a stir in order to get their name in headlines. Last year, she wore a graphic white gown with the shape of an unborn fetus and the printed slogan, "I choose life".

In many respects, his love of all-things Trump clashes directly with Rebel's view on sexuality. The other candidate wanted a 550 percent increase in Syrian refugees.
