Pop singer Joy Villa arrived Sunday at the 2017 Grammy Awards wearing a simple white outfit– until she removed it on the red carpet, revealing a dress in the style of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” presidential campaign posters.
In an Instagram video, Villa says “My whole artistic platform is about LOVE. She goes on to say “I couldn't be where I am today without the love and tenderness of those beautiful supporters and friends around me. Thank you.”
However, love was the last thing on the minds of many leftists reacting to the young star’s fashion statement.
In a recent vlog, Villa shares how she overcomes much of the criticism she has received. She encourages aspiring performing artists to “tell the haters to eff off, because they have no say over your life — and as a performing artist, people are going to criticize you ’til you’re black and blue.”
