Billie Eilish said that she watched so much pornography as a child that it “destroyed” her brain and has impacted her love life as an adult.

On Monday, Eilish spoke about this on an appearance of the SiriusXM show The Howard Stern Show, detailing her experience watching violent porn and how it has affected her life.

Eilish, who said she started watching porn around 11-years old, evidently despises it now and said that “it is a disgrace.”

“I was an advocate and I thought I was one of the guys, and we’ll talk about it and think it was really cool for not having a problem with it. I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much porn,” the 19-year old artist said.

Eilish also said that she believes she had “sleep paralysis” and “nightmares” as a result.

She further noted that watching the abusive porn caused her to have difficulty in the bedroom when she did begin to have sex and didn’t say “no to things that were not good.”

“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.”

When it comes to her love life, she says it has been challenging being a celebrity navigating and finding love, noting the mixed reactions from people either being “terrified” or assuming “you’re out of their league.”

Even though she admitted that she thought she would be sans relationship for the rest of her life, he said she got over that feeling “pretty fast.”

“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.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Eilish noted that she was diagnosed with Covid-19 in August and claimed that she “would have died” if she wasn’t vaccinated.

Despite these troubles, her musical prowess and career has had great momentum.

This past weekend, the artist hosted Saturday Night Live! for the first time. And in late July, she released her second studio album, Happier Than Ever, which was on the top of the Billboard charts for weeks.
