It didn’t take long for the Grammys to turn political.
Little-known artist Joy Villa — who was one of the first to arrive on Sunday’s red carpet — made a major political statement when she unveiled a gown emblazoned with President Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make American Great Again.
The 25-year-old singer, who isn’t up for any awards, arrived on the carpet in a white gown but quickly shed it to reveal her Trump-inspired outfit. The back of the red, white and blue dress reads “Trump” on the train.

Some did, however, support Villa’s outfit.
“Awesome!!” user Dawn Orlando wrote. “Kudos to her she is smart, brave and proud of it! That’s American.”
