Comm vs Business degree? Why?

I am torn. I just finished my associates and am transferring to a university. I was already accepted to Troy University for a business bachelors, and am waiting to hear from a few other schools. I feel my heart isn't in it though, and honestly, the debate on taking sides for a business degree being the best and worst degree to get has long since exhausted me. People like my dad tell me it's the best degree to get, gives you the most options, best chance for success, etc, etc. But then I look at the facts of how it's the most popular degree in the US, and people with it are absolutely STRUGGLING to find a halfway decent job. On top of that, MBA programs are harder to get into which is stupid because if you get a BA in Business, that's probably the only master's you'll want. Communications. I used to think nothing of it, kind of a fluff "I don't know what to do with my life" degree. Then I met a lot of people, women like me, who have this degree and pretty good jobs. One works for the NY Mets, the other the NY Jets, the other works for an advertising company in AZ and her client is the biggest casino in the state. She gets to even handle their commercial shoots and loves her work. I know all of these women in person, and all got these jobs within 6 months of graduating. Can anyone with either of these degrees weigh in? Even just in something as simple as a google search, I find nothing negative about a communications degree when I think I would, but I find nothing POSITIVE about a business degree. It's all so backwards. Communication jobs are more up my ally, but I just want a little advice.
