Trump Dress and Maintaining Values in the Entertainment Industry

I recently chatted with performing artist Joy Villa, one of the most fascinating people I have met.

I bet you remember Joy’s Donald Trump inspired dress at this year’s Grammy awards. Joy and her designer, Andre Soriano, drew inspiration for the gown from Trump’s “Make America Great Again” flag.

We discuss how she became such an independent thinker in the entertainment industry. Her answer will surprise you.

Joy pulls back the curtain on what it takes to succeed as an artist while maintaining her core principals. We also chat about how political engagement can be detrimental to an entertainer’s career and the effects political activity have on sales and popularity.

Can members of the entertainment industry proudly assert their creativity and maintain independent thought? Or, is this merely an illusion?

Right In DC is an audio podcast to inform, educate and entertain our listeners on politics, policy and foreign affairs with a view from Washington, DC.
