Green Day frontman disses Ariana Grande, praises Billie Eilish's "real" pop music


Green Day released their thirteenth studio album, Father of All Motherfuckers, on Friday, and as part of their promo tour Billie Joe Armstrong gave an interview to USA Today in which he talks dropping f-bombs, politics, and the sad state of the GRAMMYs.

When asked about music's (alleged) biggest night, Armstrong criticized the on-air presentation of Best Comedy Album, saying, "The fact that they aired a comedy record [award] and didn't have a rock band on television, I just don't even know what that is. I love comedy just as much as the next guy, but they are doing a disservice to rock music."

He did, however, voice his happiness over Billie Eilish (with whom he shared a Rolling Stone cover last year) sweeping the big four categories—dissing Ariana Grande in the process.

"It's insanely well-deserved," he said. "[She and her brother Finneas'] music is very real, and you can tell it all comes from them, which is what sets it apart from what other pop acts are doing. It's not even comparable to think about what she does compared to someone like Ariana Grande. She's the real deal."
