"Ignore it, keep preaching what I believe in and say 'Hey listen, there's a place for all beliefs.' There should be space".

Joy Villa showed up to the 2019 Grammy Awards in what's sure to be one of the most controversial ― and most talked about ― red carpet looks of the night.

Another singer also showed his approval of Trump at the Grammys was Ricky Rebel, who wore a "Trump" jacket. The back of the dress featured the words, "Build the Wall".

Villa, 27, dressed up as President Trump's longed-for border wall complete with barbed wire and carrying a Make America Great Again handbag. "(Thousands a year) because I DO NOT!"

Singer Joy Villa made a serious political statement at the Grammy Awards Sunday evening, walking the red carpet in a custom "build the wall" ballgown. Building the wall will cut down crime, protect children from being trafficked and stop the 1 in 3 women from being sexually assaulted tying to get through illegally.

Villa took to Instagram to share her motivation for the outfit. "I listen to truth", she wrote in the caption.

Unfortunately for United Kingdom music fans, there will be no live broadcast of the Grammy Awards this year. Carlile told the AP she stands "behind Ariana Grande's decision to stand up for herself and her art".

The year before, Villa also used her look to send a message, with a MAGA gown.

But Villa wasn't the only one to stir the couture pot. And in 2017, she wore her famous "Make America Great Again" dress.

This isn't the first time an artist has openly supported President Trump via fashion.

In many respects, his love of all-things Trump clashes directly with Rebel's view on sexuality.

The dress designer posted a disclaimer on Instagram.
