Conservative artist Joy Villa has done it again.

The singer showed up to this year’s red carpet in Los Angeles wearing a dress tailored to look like President’s Trump planned border wall, making this Villa’s third year in a row making a political statement at the Grammy Awards.

The gown featured a design of white bricks and black mortar, similar to the cover art for Pink Floyd’s 1979 album “The Wall.” Resting on Villa’s shoulders was a ring of barbed wire, alongside a steel crown on her head. On her back read the message “Build the wall” in red letters. Villa also carried a red “Make America Great Again” purse. She told the Hollywood Reporter the dress was designed by Desi Allinger of Desi Designs.

Villa responded to the backlash she was receiving on social media through an Instagram post, which read ‘Shut up!’ They said. ‘Stop talking politics!’ They yelled. ‘Sit down you don’t matter!’ They insisted. I don’t listen to haters. I listen to truth. Building the wall will cut down crime, protect children from being trafficked, and stop the 1 in 3 women from being sexually assaulted trying to get through illegally. It’s a humanitarian crisis. I support life. I support protection. I SUPPORT [THE WALL]!”

This isn’t Villa’s first-time turning heads.

In 2017, she wore a “Make America Great Again dress.”

Last year, she wore a dress with a fetus depicted on it and a bag that reads “CHOOSE LIFE.”
