‘She’s a troll’: Shocking Grammys outfit

THE 2019 Grammy Awards are held today, with hip-hop stars with Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Childish Gambino and Cardi B each scoring several major nominations.

And it's a busy day for awards shows, with Britain's BAFTAs taking place just hours ago - and Aussie Margot Robbie dazzled on the red carpet there.

But while the BAFTAs are all A-list elegance and refinement, music stars at the Grammys usually take a few more fashion risks - for better or worse. While we waited for stars to arrive we took a trip down memory lane at some of the most bizarre Grammys fashions from years past.

Grammys 2019: All the nominations, and winners as they're announced

But now, to this year's red carpet:

Little-known singer Joy Villa has a history of attention-grabbing Grammys outfits - a few years back she wore a dress emblazoned with Trump's 'MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN' slogan. This year, she wants Trump to 'BUILD THE WALL':

The response on social media to Villa's now-serial red carpet antics has been mixed, with many slamming her as a "troll" and asking how she gets invited back year after year despite her lack of music industry accomplishments.

On to some actual stars...

Love it or hate it, only Janelle Monae could pull this outfit off. Her album Dirty Computer was one of the best of 2018 - get into it.
