Musicians were strutting their stuff at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, but this musician caught the attention of many with her brick-laid dress portraying the president’s message of “Build the Wall.” Now, she’s reiterating her support for President Donald Trump.

Musician Joy Villa drew criticism for sporting a political message at the award show on Sunday and responded to it on Twitter.

“I don’t care what anyone thinks. I 100 percent support the wall & our President,” she wrote.

Along with her dress, she held a red purse that included Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

Appearing on Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria,” the singer-songwriter discussed walking down the red carpet in her unique outfit as she stood up for her conservative beliefs.

“It was crazy. I mean, people — a lot of people were just giving me side-eye, giving me negative looks, not willing to look me in the eye, scrunching up their face,” she said.

Villa told host Maria Bartiromo that when she walked down the red carpet, “the photographers were screaming at me”:

“They were screaming, ‘Down with Trump. We hate Trump. Trump hates you. You’re a traitor and Trump’s a traitor.’ I was like, ‘This is different.’ It was way more hate and vitriol this year than in 2017.”

Despite the backlash, Villa also received praise from conservative author Ann Coulter.

“Joy Villa for President!” Coulter wrote on Twitter.

In 2017, Villa walked down the red carpet in another pro-Trump outfit draped in the president’s slogan.

Last year, she showed her support for the pro-life movement with a “choose life” sign and fetus portrayed on her dress.

Villa wasn’t the only one making a political statement with her outfit during the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Singer Ricky Rebel also showed up in a jacket that read “Trump,” “Keep America Great,” and “2020.”

“I love this, that other artists are stepping out,” Villa said, adding that she believes it’s a “counter-culture shift”:

“I think that 2017 was kind of lonely. I was like, ‘OK, I’m the only one getting death threats. But the president is here. I’m supporting him.’ And then, now, we have other artists coming out, supporting Trump, becoming less afraid.”

Even though many celebrities see award shows as an opportunity to bash Trump, Villa and Rebel used it as a way to express their support for the president.
