While many in the entertainment world are extremely anti-Trump, there were some surprising pro-Trump displays at the Grammy Awards last night. Singers Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel used the red carpet to promote their support for President Trump.
Villa, dressed as President Trump's intended border wall. She carried a "Make America Great Again" bag alongside her silver dress with barbed wire on her shoulders.
In an interview with Variety, the outspoken singer stated, "This is what I believe in. 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."
The dress was designed by Desi Designs Couture. Though the designer ensured followers her views were not the same, she praised the design and wrote: "We are all different and we belong." on her Instagram.
Villa has shared her conservative views at the Grammys before. In 2018, Villa made headlines for wearing a rainbow-colored anti-abortion dress, and in 2017, she wore a blue "Make America Great Again" dress.
The now iconic 2017 @recordingacademy Grammys look supporting @realdonaldtrump and not giving a f$&k.America is my home and in my heart! Our President has effectively lowered unemployment and increased opportunities for Blacks, Latinos and all to succeed and find a job. His strong Prolife stance and fight for the sovereignty of life is exemplary. I went from Bernie Democrat to Trumplican in a matter of months in 2016 after witnessing his powerful speeches against the swamp and fake news! I was proud to support my President then and even more proud now. #MAGA #protrump #joytribe #joyvilla #style #magadress
2019 GRAMMYS 1 week away! My @recordingacademy Grammys Dress 2018! When I publicly stood up for the life of the unborn and shared my unplanned pregnancy adoption story 1 year ago I knew it was vitally important. With the new #nyc abortion laws allowing children to be destroyed up to 9 months for almost any reason falling under “health” concerns, it is apart of my LIFE’S PURPOSE to sing for life and decry the brutal effects of taking that life. You have the power to choose: Choose life. Choose adoption. Choose hope. Choose motherhood. Whatever you do, choose LIFE over death! #lifematters #unbornlivesmatter #babies #birthmother #grammys2018 #joyvilla #adoption #adoptionnotabortion #joytribe #love #compassion #proudlyprolife #prolife #prolifedress
Ricky Rebel also surprised attendees as he wore a blue jacket with the words "Keep America Great" and "Trump 2020" over a white blouse, pants, and boots. Rebel, a bixsexual, has been an avid supporter of President Trump. He receives a great deal of criticism from liberal media, but he stands by his decision to back Trump.
In an interview with Independent Review Journal, he said his support stems from President Trump's efforts to block terrorists from getting into the US.
"A radical murdered 49 LGBT in cold blood at Pulse Nightclub," he told the outlet. "That could have been me, my family, and friends there. I voted for the person who wanted to heavily vet refugees. The other candidate wanted a 550 percent increase in Syrian refugees. It only takes one."
