During her discussion with Stern, the “Happier Than Ever” singer got candid about her struggle with porn while giving insight into her new single “Male Fantasy.”
Billie Eilish Began Watching Porn At 11
In the single, Eilish sang about loving porn and using it as a distraction. However, the opposite is at play in her real life. She revealed that she doesn’t like porn but her hatred for explicit videos stems from a toxic relationship that started as a child.
According to the 7-time Grammy Award winner, she began watching porn at 11 and it negatively impacted her mind.
As a woman, I think porn is a disgrace. I used to watch a lot of porn, to be honest. I started watching porn when I was like 11. I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much porn.
Eilish said she began watching porn to become “one of the guys” and subscribed to violent pornography which caused night terrors and sleep paralysis. Porn also contributed to some issues in the bedroom for the 19-year-old prodigy.
“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,” she lamented.
Now, Eilish is saying she is angry at herself for loving porn. She confessed, “I’m so angry that porn is so loved, and I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was okay.” She also condemned how women look in explicit videos saying, “The way that vaginas look in porn is f—ing crazy. No vaginas look like that. Women’s bodies don’t look like that.”

The “Bad Guy” Singer Struggles With Dating
Eilish also talked about her dating life and got candid about how romance was difficult for celebrities. She revealed that it’s been challenging to be in a relationship because she doesn’t go out so much or flirt with people.
She admitted that people find it hard to connect with her romantically because they either feel scared of her or think she’s way out of their league.
Getting candid about her love life, she said, “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.”

Eilish has since been dubbed a “natural comedian” for her wonderful performance, with many praising her amazing sense of humor.
