Billie Eilish says she used to ‘watch a lot of porn’ but now calls it ‘a disgrace’

Billie Eilish has shockingly revealed that she started watching pornography when she was just 11 years old, and now believes it has ‘really destroyed’ her brain. 

The 19-year-old pop star made the alarming comments while appearing on the Howard Stern Show Tuesday, and shared her thoughts on porn and its effect on her first sexual experiences. 

‘As a woman, I think porn is a disgrace,’ Billie told talk show host Stern, 67. 

She continued, ‘I used to watch a lot of porn, to be honest. I started watching porn when I was like 11.’

‘The first few times I, you know, had sex, I was not saying no to things that were not good. It was because I thought that’s what I was supposed to be attracted to’

The Los Angeles native told Stern, ‘I’m so angry that porn is so loved, and I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was okay.’

The Bad Guy songstress also slammed porn for creating unrealistic expectations.

‘The way that vaginas look in porn is fucking crazy,’ she said. ‘No vaginas look like that. Women’s bodies don’t look like that. We don’t come like that.’

Though Billie has said that she prefers to keep her love life private, she shared some thoughts on dating with Stern. 

She said, ‘I’m not a serial dater … I don’t go to stuff and flirt with people. 

‘It’s really hard to meet people when people are either terrified of you or think that you’re out of their league. 

Billie continued, ‘Last year, I thought that I’d be single for the rest of my life. I genuinely couldn’t even picture myself in a relationship of any sort. I got over that pretty fast.’ 

The singer-song writer is reportedly dating actor and podcaster Matthew Tyler Vorce, though she has not publicly confirmed the relationship.

The pair were first linked last April and they were spotted together on October 26 as they attended Doja Cat’s 26th costume birthday party in Los Angeles.

A source told Page Six that two were ‘inseparable, sharing kisses.’ 

‘They kept close to each other the whole night and never left each other’s side,’ the insider revealed.   

Billie was previously in a relationship with rapper Brandon Quention Adams. The pair began dating in 2018 but split after less than a year together.

Billie also described her two-month battle with COVID-19 and credits the vaccine for saving her life.

‘I want it to be clear that it is because of the vaccine I’m fine. I think if I weren’t vaccinated, I would have, like, died, because it was bad,’ 

‘When I say it was bad, I more just mean that it felt horrible. But really, in the scheme of COVID, it was not bad. You know what I mean? When you’re sick, you feel f***ing horrible. 

‘The vaccine is f***ing amazing and it also saved [my brother/collaborator] Finneas [O’Connell] from getting it, it saved my parents from getting it, saved my friends from getting it.’
