Joy Villa once again made a political statement at the Grammys with a dress with a painted fetus and a purse that says "Choose Life."

The singer came under fire at the 2017 Grammys after wearing a pro-Trump dress to the ceremony.

For the 2018 Grammys, the 26-year-old once again brought attention with her wardrobe with a white Pronovias wedding dress with a rainbow painting of a skirt and a purse embellished with the words "Choose Life."

“I’m a pro-life woman," Villa told Fox News. "This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do. I’m all about life.”

Her dress was inspired by her own experience giving up her child for adoption at 21 because of her anti-abortion beliefs.

Villa's 2017 Grammys dress was deemed controversial for its flaunting of Trump's campaign statement "Make America Great Again."

The singer recently claimed that Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, slapped her on backside multiple times after she asked for him to stop.

Just like 2017, Villa's dress will likely be the talk of the ceremony.

She definitely succeeded in making a "statement."
