Rebel posted a video to YouTube on Grammys night to explain the fashion statement designed by Filipino-American designer, Andre Soriano (Soriano designed Villa's 2017 MAGA gown). She accompanied her look with a silver crown and a red purse that boasted Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".
Villa said she supports President Donald Trump's views on immigration, which she believes are often wrongly associated with racism and xenophobia.
While Villa's dress was certainly bold, it wasn't necessarily unexpected.
And while she said she doesn't want to keep immigrants out, her language - which mimics President Donald Trump's - isn't fooling people. And in 2017, she wore her famous "Make America Great Again" dress.

A native of Orange County, Villa is also a noted Scientologist, a self-described vegan bodybuilder, and a former Bernie Sanders supporter (she's since deleted tweets endorsing the Vermont senator).
Villa told The Hollywood Reporter she used to be a liberal but she "was very conservative in my heart" due to her upbringing.
And it looked as though she was keen to stir up controversy once again by dressing as Trump's longed-for border wall. It's about protecting the people who are in this country. There's tons Trump supporters out there all of different colors. The consequent publicity resulted in her album I Make the Static reaching number 1 among digital downloads on Amazon and iTunes in the US. I approach it as a show.
She elaborated on her viewpoint, saying that about a third of women "who are trying to come to this country illegally are sexually assaulted".
"I voted for the person who wanted to heavily vet refugees".
