Billie Eilish has said that watching pornography as a child “destroyed” her brain and negatively affected her sex life.

The multiple Grammy award winner said she was angry that so many people love porn, expressing concerns about what it teaches men and women about how they should behave during sex.

Speaking on SiriusXM, she said: “As a woman I think porn is a disgrace and I used to watch a lot of porn to be honest.

“I started watching porn when I was like 11 and I didn’t understand why it was a bad thing.

“I thought that was how you learned to have sex.”

She said she was watching abusive porn when she was a young as 14.

“I was an advocate and thought I was one of the guys and would talk about it and thought I was cool for not having a problem with it,” she said.

“I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much porn.”

The Bad Guy singer, 19, told the radio station she “got to the point where I couldn’t watch anything else”.

“Unless it was violent I didn’t think it was attractive,” she said.

“I was a virgin, I had never done anything so it lead to problems where the first few times I had sex I was not saying no to things that were not good and it’s because I thought that that was what I was supposed to be attracted to.

“I’m so angry that porn is so loved and I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was OK and… it’s how so many people think they’re supposed to learn.”

She refers to pornography in the song Male Fantasy, which is on her latest album Happier Than Ever.

In the opening lines of the track, she sings: “Home alone, trying not to eat, distract myself with pornography. I hate the way she looks at me.

“I can’t stand the dialogue – she would never be that satisfied, it’s a male fantasy. I’m going back to therapy.”
