This year, Villa kept things equally political on the red carpet and explained why she wore the controversial dress.

Singer Ricky Rebel also wore a Trump-inspired ensemble to the Grammys.

Villa, 27, dressed up as President Trump's longed-for border wall complete with barbed wire and carrying a Make America Great Again handbag.

"Well, I'm Ricky Rebel, I have a new album called "The New Alpha" so I wanted to wear something that represented what an alpha is and who an alpha is and I am the new alpha", Rebel told ET.

"I'm part-Latina, I'm black", she added, saying the dress was her way of making a statement to her progressive peers who were at the event.

This isn't the first time an artist has openly supported President Trump via fashion. Keep America great. That's right, baby.

He went on, "My name is Ricky Rebel and I'm a reflection of America".

Joy Villa, who takes advantage of her Grammy spotlight every year, stuck with her right-wing message at the show on Sunday (Feb 10). The jacket read "Trump" on the back and "Keep America Great" on the front.

As it so happens, Rebel's jacket was reversible.

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

"Enjoy your president!" said one person loudly at the singer as he flashed his sequined Trump suit. So, yeah. It's safe to say that not everyone was a fan of Rebel's look.
