Joy Villa arrives at the 59th Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Villa is best known for the red, white & blue 'Make America Great Again' dress she wore to the Grammys.

Kid Rock may have been kidding about his joke run for Congress, but singer Joy Villa -- best known for wearing a spangly "Make America Great Again" dress to the Grammy Awards in February -- told Fox News she really is thinking about a Congressional bid. "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," Villa told Fox & Friends on Monday (Oct. 30). 

"If I run, I'm going to win," said Villa, 26, who was little-known before her Grammy red carpet strut. The singer -- who has drawn attention in years past with outrageous, often revealing Grammy red carpet outfits -- saw her 2014 EP, I Make the Static, shoot up the charts after her 2017 Grammys stunt, rising to No. 1 on the digital rankings on iTunes and Amazon in the U.S and selling 15,000 copies in two days according to Nielsen Music.


If she runs, Villa, 26, said she's planning to focus on tax reform, legal immigration and helping American families and said she's proud to be former Trump adviser Steve Bannon's "honey badger." Sounding not unlike her dress' namesake, who she supports "100 percent," Villa took some hard swings at a trio of Democratic congresswomen, Maxine Waters, Frederica Wilson and Nancy Pelosi, claiming that they are "ruining the country" and that it's time "we have strong women who step up, run, win and support the president." She confirmed that she'd be running as a Republican and soon after got a supportive tweet from Trump.
