Billie Eilish Gushes Over Ariana Grande Grammy Nominations: ‘I Want Her to Win’
The "everything i wanted" singer doesn't believe she'll win any Grammy Awards, citing that the "7 Rings" singer is the most deserving of the awards.
"I think Ariana Grande deserves a lot," the 17-year-old said in an interview with Capital FM. "Especially just because she did all of that while she was having the worst year of her life and that's very impressive to me." Eilish is referring to Grande's difficult year dealing with the Manchester terrorism attack that happened at her concert and the death of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.
"To even pick up a microphone and go on stage after some s--t she’s been through is unreal to me," she continued. "And the fact she’s made two albums, basically, in that amount of time is shocking, and they’re both good and that’s insane. I want her to win as much as she’s been nominated for."
Grande has five nominations for Record Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for "7 Rings," Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for thank u, next and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Boyfriend" featuring Social House.
Eilish broke the record for being the youngest artist to be nominated in all of the "big four" categories, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. She is also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album for When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Bad Guy."
