If we told you that Joy Villa had already worn a controversial outfit on the Grammys, your first reaction would probably be: “Who?”
But you know what, that’s all fair enough – since the musician has apparently never released a full album and is known for his excitement during the annual music prize show. In fact, if you look up her now, I bet that the mention on Wikipedia of her Grammy’s outfits is longer than her track list. (I’ll spare you the trouble: I’ve just checked it and it’s it.)
To maintain the sumptuous amount of fame she has, Villa has ensured that her most recent Grammy outfit was even stranger than the previous … by being dressed like the American border wall
“I do not care what someone thinks. I support the wall and our president @realDonaldTrump 100%,” she wrote on Twitter. “Do you want to get more medicine?” (70% of heroin from Mexico) More illegal women are being sexually abused (1 in 3)? More children are being trafficked (thousands a year) because I do NOT! “
This follows her decision to come next year as a walking advertisement for the pro-life movement after she has painted a white dress with a rainbow fetus in the womb, as well as her decision in 2017 to wear a MAGA dress.
Needless to say, people who keep up with the Grammies are used to the quarrel of Villa – and not everyone is completely behind her.
“This dress is what happens when you are a talentless hack who has to find ridiculous ways to get attention. No one will remember your name within five years,” said a person on social media.
“[These are] the extremes you have to go to because your music does not sell,” another added. “There are more videos about the controversy you are causing than your real music, just be with us, you are desperate for power, huh?”
Meanwhile, others pointed out the flagrant problem with Villa with Pink Floyd-inspired text on her dress: “You realize the irony with Pink Floyd’s The Wall images when that whole album was about” breaking the wall “of the right fascism? “
In an interview with a red carpet, Villa also discussed her legacy of Black and Latina and said she was not against all immigration, only the ‘illegal’ species.
“I believe in building the wall to protect our southern border, not to keep people out, but to protect the citizens of our country,” she said. “I am part Latina, I am black and I believe in what the president says This [the dress] is for me a display in a very visual way and I always like to make a statement.”
Some people, however, were behind her and supported her because she talked about her beliefs.
“Continue to trigger that group of thinking snowflakes,” said a fan.
“Way to go !! Would love a dress! Bravo !!” another one added.
But for the most part people on social media found that the outfit of Villa was bad in taste, and that she only wears such outrageous dresses to stay relevant. Although it must be said – her tactics have worked so far.
Let’s see if she is still familiar enough to get an invitation for next year’s Grammys, at what time who knows what she will become. The trans-military ban? A denial of climate change? With the administration of Trump, the possibilities are endless.
