As I promised, I can debate anything short of politics.

Anyways I believe Billie Eilish is better than Ariana Grande. Try to change my mind.

Ariana Grande has a richer voice, And Billie Eilish's voice is depressing, And not right for the world we live in today.

The biggest hits of Billie Eilish are deep and profound. They describe how mental illnesses works and how to handle them.

Meanwhile Ariana Grande sing about how she is rich and has a boyfriend in her biggest hits. This is greed and pride as a sin.

Billie Eilish is just talking about depression, While Ariana brings happiness and joy to the world.

1. Billie Eilish brings inspirations, Not depression.

This is one of her biggest hits in this year. Everything I Wanted.
"I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm being honest
It might've been a nightmare
To anyone who might care
Thought I could fly (fly)
So I stepped off the golden, Mm
Nobody cried (cried, Cried, Cried, Cried)
Nobody even noticed
I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they might care (might care, Might care)
I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me"

Billie Eilish, At this verse, Which is based on a true story, Wrote about how she overcame mental breakdowns. Then the pen turned and we discovered this is all inside a dream, And that there is no danger, No stepping off the golden bridge, No threats. Her being peaceful with her brother. In the music video she drove her valuable car, With her brother, Apast the beach, Because there is, At this point for her, No other person she can connect with better than her brother. She would rather lose the world and go into the eternal dream with her brother, Where she can finally get everything she wanted, Instead of losing him alone. She knew the fate of herself and her brother has ended, But it is all a satisfaction that is worth risking for.

I am 14 and this is deep. This is just an analysis. Tell me if this has inspiration or not. There could be depression, But inspiration covers it too. Billie Eilish covers the normality of the reality of human problems, And ow a normal could solve it with style.

2. Ariana Grande brings greed and vague pride, Not joy
In Ariana's world, There is no problem. Unlike Billie Eilish which actually tries to solve problems, She is like, "Auh, I have a boyfriend, I have banks of cash, I have a ring, I have a sportscar(that I can crash and waste a million on), The problems will go away". Like I am not even kidding. Instead of mental comfort, Ariana focuses too much on material wealth that ANY thinker and doers that are worthy would Choose Billie Eilish's music for abandoning material wealth. It is not in the same level.

Ah yes, Sources. I don't know the most recent big hit, But one I can find is "7 rings".

"Yeah, Breakfast at Tiffany's and bottles of bubbles
Girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble
Lashes and diamonds, ATM machines
Buy myself all of my favorite things (yeah)
Been through some bad sh*t, I should be a sad b*tch
Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?
Rather be tied up with calls and not strings
Write my own checks like I write what I sing, Yeah (yeah)
My wrist, Stop watchin', My neck is flossin'
Make big deposits, My gloss is poppin'
You like my hair? Gee, Thanks, Just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
I want it, I got it, I want it, I got it
You like my hair? Gee, Thanks, Just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (yeah)"

Ariana Grande at this video and at other videos as well is basically a spoiled millennial. This song just describes how she buys things, Which increases greed and degenerative purchases. This song is pretty much only useful for a human-dissolving propaganda as that people will go for material wealth instead of valuable lessons. And wow, This song is so shallow, I can't even write a proper analysis on. This is just her showing how she is rich and spoiled and nothing else.

I am 14 and this is too shallow.
