Billie Eilish began watching porn at 11: ‘It really destroyed my brain’

Billie Eilish says porn “destroyed my brain” after she began watching graphic online movies while she was still in elementary school.

The singing sensation — who is now 19 — made the shocking confession during “The Howard Stern Show” on Monday.

“As a woman, I think porn is a disgrace,” Eilish declared in the interview. “I used to watch a lot of porn, to be honest. I started watching porn when I was like 11.”

The “Ocean Eyes” crooner continued: “I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much porn.”

Eilish also admitted that she began watching more and more graphic types of pornography, which warped her ideas about sex and relationships.

“It got to a point where I couldn’t watch anything else unless it was violent, I didn’t think it was attractive,” she confessed.

“I was a virgin. I had never done anything. And so, it led to problems … The first few times I 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 singer told Stern that she began watching “abusive” BDSM porn, which she says causes her to now suffer from night terrors and sleep paralysis.

“I’m so angry that porn is so loved,” Eilish blasted. “And I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was OK.”

The singer — who is still a teenager — says porn led her to have warped ideas about sex and relationships.

Eilish also slammed the porn industry for creating unrealistic expectations of women’s bodies.

“The way that vaginas look in porn is f–king crazy,” she commented. “No vaginas look like that. Women’s bodies don’t look like that. We don’t come like that.”

Psychologists have long warned about the dangers of children being exposed to pornography before they become sexually active, saying it negatively shapes their ideas and expectations of sex.

Australian expert Joe Tucci told The Post in 2016 that there’s “an increase in the numbers of kids engaged in problematic sexual behavior, sexually aggressive or harmful behavior” directly linked to porn.

Eilish says she started to watch increasingly violent porn, which led her to suffer from night terrors and sleep paralysis.

“I can’t see how what they are doing is not related to what they are seeing it … we are seeing kids today engage in sex acts that 15 years ago they never came close to doing,” he added.

Meanwhile, Eilish told Stern that she wants to keep her dating life out of the public eye.

While she was honest about her experiences with porn, the singer was far shyer when questioned about her relationship status.

 “I’m not a serial dater … I don’t go to stuff and flirt with people,” Eilish stated.

“It’s really hard to meet people when people are either terrified of you or think that you’re out of their league,” she added. “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.”
