  • Joy Villa Grammys

Villa turned heads on the Red Carpet preshow on Sunday after removing a white coat to reveal a full-length red, white and blue evening gown with the words "Make America Great Again" written down one side and giant letters on the bottom that spelled out "TRUMP".

It's beside the point whether Villa is legitimately a Trump devotee; what matters more is the stack of numbers that her dress debut racked up.

The exposure gave Villa's record sales a boost as her EP "I Make The Static" is now one of the top trending albums on iTunes.

When Soriano was asked about his political beliefs, he responded by saying that he is a proud American and stated that he believes that he is an example of the American dream.

If anything comes of this incident, it seems unlikely Smith will ever see an National Football League field again as a player. TMZ Sports reports suspended Raiders OLB Aldon Smith is under investigation in California for a "domestic incident ".

The patriotic dress also helped Villa's presence on social media, with her followers on Twitter increasing from about 15,000 to 111,000 on Tuesday. "You can either stand for what you believe in or fall for what you don't", she wrote in an Instagram post, adding "agree to disagree".

"There was a lot of controversy around the president and a lot of hate honestly, and I wanted to change the narrative", Villa said.

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". "I love this country".

Villa said she has received backlash and even death threats for wearing the dress, but she said she has been more overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and love she's experienced. I'm from the Philippine islands. We all live on this planet. "She is one of the people on this planet that really promotes love". I am a minority, Joy is black. We need to move this country forward, and we believe it's time to promote love. Supporters of the U.S. president were impressed with Villa's gown while others were skeptical with Villa's choice of fashion at the Grammys.
