Singer Joy Villa, who in February made headlines by wearing a red, white and blue “Make America Great Again” dress at the Grammy Awards, is now taking a long, hard look at a new career — politics.
Villa announced Friday on “Fox & Friends” that she is seriously considering running for Congress in 2018, according to Independent Journal Review.
“We’re looking right now, but I’m leaning towards a yes,” Villa said.

“I’m looking at Florida, I’m looking at California, and I’m looking at New York, because these are all places I live and work and have grown up in.”
She said she has already huddled with Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon to discuss a potential strategy, and said that she would most likely run for Congress in a Florida district.
“If I run, I’m gonna win,” she vowed.
Villa’s comments drew the attention of President Donald Trump.
Villa said she supports the “nationalist” and “populist” movements that helped Trump win the 2016 presidential election.
“It’s time we have strong women who step up, run, win, and support the president and America,” she said. “And I’d be honored to be one of those.”
Villa said that although she would be “an outsider,” she would “definitely” run as a Republican.
The singer describes herself as an “unabashed conservative and Trump supporter,” Fox News reported.
She was appointed to the president’s Campaign Advisory Board for his 2020 campaign.
Villa’s website calls her a “Republican Millennial” who “speaks proudly on topics ranging from Trump’s policies and actions to the current social climate in pop culture and Hollywood, as well as race relations as a conservative woman of color.”
