MAGA Grammys dress leads to sales spike


A singer who sported a President Trump-inspired dress to the Grammy Awards is seeing a sudden spike in sales.

Joy Villa posed in a blue gown bearing the commander in chief’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again!” — as well as his name — at the annual awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Shortly after she unveiled the pro-Trump frock, Villa’s record, “I Make the Static,” jumped to the top spot on Amazon’s list of top 100 digital paid albums. The collection of tunes also leapt to No. 7 on iTunes’ top album chart, according to Fox News.

“Never heard of Joy Villa before the 2017 Grammy Awards show but I now plan to buy her music. She has great taste in red carpet dresses,” one wrote.

“Love her positive 2017 Grammy statement made with her pro-Trump dress. Classic dress and classy singer!” another reviewer said.

Villa wrote on Instagram of the custom-made get-up by designer Andre Soriano, “Sometimes you just got to be free to express yourself.”

The politically charged outfit also drew a hefty dose of criticism, with some social media users calling the dress “lame” and “attention-seeking.”
