With the incredible amount of pressure to be "politically correct" in the entertainment business, we not only need to recognize when a celebrity hold fast to their principles. We should celebrate when they stand up for what they believe in at the risk of being shunned.
For the second year in a row, Joy Villa used the red carpet to make her political beliefs known. Last year she wore a "Make America Great Again" dress to the Grammys causing waves and backlash. This year she proudly wore her pro-life stance on her dress and her evening bag. Make no mistake about it, for Joy, this is personal. She shared her story with Maria Bartiromo.
Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, Joy chose life and gave her daughter up for adoption. And when she explains the image on her dress, it makes the idea of it even more beautiful.
In a world where Taylor Swift is still being disabused for not being on Team Hillary in 2016 and openly Republican or Conservative performers often have their careers limited if not already sufficient power house within the industry, Joy is a breath of fresh air. At 31 with far less name recognition than her peers Taylor and Kay, she is telling her story, her way.
So celebrate Joy, her message and her courage. It almost makes up for that horrid loop of Hillary reading aloud from "Fire and Fury". I said almost. Then go out to YouTube and listen to a song or two from this beautiful woman with a beautiful voice.
