Let’s be honest, wearing an Afro is certainly a political statement, whether you intend it to be or not. For me, it’s a way of saying, “I’m black and I’m proud,” so it’s surprising that a woman with clear African lineage would proceed to use the Grammys as an opportunity to showcase her support for #notmypresident Trump. If you have any love for your people, it’s simply not possible that you would be in support of head Cheeto.
Musician, Joy Villa, however, ain’t here for all that. You can read more about her and whatever there is of her musical career HERE. According to wikipedia,
Her father, Rev. Joseph Villa, was Italian-American and her mother, Mildred Angela Pierce Villa was African American, and Choctaw Indian.
Joy offered the following message about her Grammys appearance via Instagram Post:
My whole artistic platform is about LOVE!🎶💕💋 I couldn’t be where I am today without the love and tenderness of those beautiful supporters and friends around me. Thank you ❤️ I hope you enjoy tonight’s @grammysawards2017 and remember to forget your problems and focus on your future! You are infinite and beautiful and no one can stop you but you. 💋So go out and celebrate yourself as a winner no matter what, together with those you adore!
Also, just in case you’re curious. She’s made a habit of looking a hot a$$ mess at the Grammys. Here’s what she wore in 2015 and 2016, respectively.
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
