  • Twitter Can't Handle Joy Villa's Outrageous Border Wall-Inspired 2019 Grammys Look

On Sunday night, she - unsurprisingly - made a spectacle of herself when she showed up in yet another eye-roll-inducing outfit.

Singer Joy Villa dressed as a border wall, complete with barb wire, during the Grammys on February 10. The words "Build the Wall" were emblazoned on the back side of the dress - designed by Desi Lee Allinger-Nelson of Desi Designs Couture. Draped in silver with barbed wire-looking tufts on her shoulders and carrying a "Make America Great Again" Villa told the "Los Angeles Times" that her look was in support of "protecting American citizens".

Donald J. Trump has two big supporters at the GRAMMYs.

"I'm wearing this silver suit and stretchy trousers, and after the photo, he smacks my a** really hard", Villa told Politico.

"I'm part-Latina, I'm black", Villa said. This to me is a representation of that, in a very visual way.

Palestinian teens killed by Israeli fire in border clashes - Gaza Health Ministry
The enclave's health ministry says more than 220 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli troops at the protests. In the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, meanwhile, thousands of Palestinians attended the funerals of the teenagers.

"Well to no surprise, I'm still a Trump supporter and supporting the president and what he's doing". Despite Trump claiming there's a crisis, border crossings on the southern border have been decreasing for years. In 2015, she again created a stir when she sported a sheer dress of orange netting. So why does she keep getting invited to the Grammys?

Early Monday morning, Villa tweeted that her "Home Sweet Home" album was "climbing" on Amazon Music's Top 100 paid albums chart, noting that it was at No. 79. After her 2017 Grammys stunt, Villa's music also shot to the top of the charts.

"It's nothing new. But I believe he's the one that's going to get it done", she said of the current president.

"I grew up in theater, so I've always used costume as a way to express myself", Villa told THR. Do you want more drugs brought in?

"One in three women who are trying to come to this country illegally are sexually assaulted", Villa explained. "(Thousands a year) because I DO NOT!" "I support what the president says about building the wall, so that's what this dress represents", she also said.
