LOS ANGELES - Two California singers made no secret of their political beliefs at Sunday's Grammy Awards, paying tribute to President Donald Trump with their red carpet looks.
In a show of support for Trump's border wall plans, Joy Villa wore a Desi Designs gown with the message "Build the Wall" and carried a "Make America Great Again" handbag. Meanwhile, Ricky Rebel donned a "Keep America Great" jacket.
"'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," Villa wrote in an Instagram post. "Building the wall will cut down crime, protect children from being trafficked and stop the 1 in 3 women from being sexually assaulted tying to get through illegally. It’s a humanitarian crisis. I support life. I support protection. I SUPPORT THEWALK!"

Rebel also shared a photo of his look on Instagram, calling himself "a reflection of the 60 million+ Americans that voted for @realdonaldtrump."
This isn't the first time Villa has turned heads at the Grammys. Last year, she wore a white gown decorated with a painting of a fetus and carried a "Choose Life" handbag.
My statement for the 60th @recordingacademy is #CHOOSELIFE. 🙏🏽💗💋 I believe in loving the child and the mother, and I am proudly #ProLife. There is so much pain out there, but I choose to spread love and hope. ❤️💗💕I hand painted my @pronovias gown with a recreation of my daughter’s sonogram portrait I painted in 2007 at 20 years old, 8 months pregnant with my beautiful daughter, whom I adopted out to a wonderful family. I’m incredibly blessed to have given life, and I hope to encourage anyone in a similar painful situation to choose adoption. 🙏🏽 I also hand painted my #Chooselife bag! And my gorgeous crown is made in USA, NYC. My dress comes from nonprofit @thebridalgardennyc who donates all of the proceeds to @brooklyncharterschool supporting underprivileged minority children. #love #blessed #life #grammys #grammys2018 #joyvillagrammys #joyvillamusic #grammysnyc #redcarpet #grammysfashion #MAGA #princessjoyvilla
She also wore a pro-Trump dress in 2017.
Sometimes you just gotta be free to express yourself. 😍✨🎶 thank you to all of my supporters and fellow believers. Life is about living free and loving it. Be your beautiful selves tonight! 😘💋🎶😍💕 dr as by @officialandresoriano makeup by @nicholerayartistry Publicist: @mwprinc #grammys2017 #love #happygrammysday #joyvillagrammys #joyvilla
