Singer Joy Villa stunned on Sunday's red carpet by wearing a President Donald Trump-themed "Make America Great Again" dress.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the designer of the dress - Filipino immigrant Andre Soriano - echoed Joy's support for the current president, although he denied to comment on anything specific.
The 25-year-old recording artist, model and actress defended her wardrobe selection on the red carpet in a post, writing, "Sometimes you just gotta be free to express yourself".
"It's more so about love", he said of the red, white and blue gown.
"Go big, or go home", Villa tweeted. She also wrote about forgetting problems and focusing on the future. Billboard noted that Villa was atop Amazon's paid albums chart by the end of the show, outpacing performers Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, among others. We only live once, and we need to promote love. I've never been in the political area. However, it's just so insane that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump, or this and that, someone wants to bomb the White House. "America is about immigrants", the designer added. I am an American, I moved here from the Philippines, and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. I'm from the Philippine islands, I am a proud American.More news: Disneyland Sets May 27 Opening Date For 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Attraction
According to initial sales reports from Nielsen Music, the artist's album I Make the Static sold about 15,000 copies in the USA on February 12 and 13. I am a minority, Joy is black. The back of the dress was bedazzled with large sparkling letters reading "TRUMP".
However, the post-2016 Election America we live in is a insane place, and insane things happen.
"It's not about who you voted for or what you believe, it's more about love and unifying". Fans also applauded Soriano for his real guts and for doing a great job.
It didn't take long for Sunday's Grammy Awards to get political. Among the Grammys 2017 winners included Adele's "Hello" for Best Song of the Year, Chance the Rapper as Best New Artist, and David Bowie's "Blackstar" for Best Rock Song. "You are infinite and handsome and no one can stop you but you", Villa wrote.
