Billie Eilish opened up about a COVID battle and experiences with adult movies in a tell-all interview with Howard Stern.
The teenager has spoken out in support of the COVID-19 vaccine after revealing she thinks she would have died if she wasn’t vaccinated.
The pop star opened up on her two month battle with the virus on The Howard Stern show.
‘F*ck that sh*t, dude. It was bad. I didn’t die, and I wasn’t gonna die, but that does not take away from how miserable it was. It was terrible. I still have side effects, I was sick for, like, two months almost. This was in August, a couple months ago. […] 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*cking horrible. […] The vaccine is f*cking amazing and it also saved Finneas from getting, it saved my parents from getting it, saved my friends from getting it.”
Thankfully, she made a full recovery.
In the same interview, Eilish spoke about her experiences with adult movies, saying she started watching it when she was 11, but spoke about how it ‘destroyed her brain’.
“As a woman, I think p*rn is a disgrace, and I used to watch a lot of p*rn, to be honest. I started watching p*rn when I was like 11. I didn’t understand why it was a bad thing.
I thought that’s how you learned how to have sex. […] I used to be the person that would talk about p*rn all the time. I’d be like, ‘Oh, it’s so stupid that anybody would think that p*rn is bad or f*cked up,’ you know, ‘I think it’s so cool and it’s great and it’s empowering.’ […] I was an advocate and I thought I was ‘one of the guys’ and would talk about it and think I was really cool for not having a problem with it and not seeing why it was bad and… you know.
I think it really destroyed my brain and I feel incredibly devastated that I was exposed to so much p*rn.”
She went on to explain how violent p*rn led to problems when she was sexually active.
“I think that I had sleep paralysis and these night terrors slash nightmares because of it. I think that’s how it started because I would just watch abusive BDSM and that’s what I thought was attractive. It got to a point where I couldn’t watch anything else unless it was violent.
I didn’t think it was attractive. And I was a virgin, I had never done anything, and it led to problems. The first few times I, you know, had sex, I was not saying no to things that were not good. It’s because I thought that that’s what I was supposed to be attracted to. I’m so angry that p*rn is so loved, and I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was OK. The way that vaginas look in p*rn is f*cking crazy. No vaginas look like that. Women’s bodies don’t look like that. We don’t come like that. […] It’s how so many people think they’re supposed to learn.”
Adult actor Randy Spears has praised ‘brave’ Eilish for her confession.
Speaking to TMZ, he said:
“This is a very real addiction that can be very damaging to a young person.
“When we’re that young, our brains don’t have the capacity to digest that sort of thing.
“Who in their right mind would want their young daughter or son watching some woman with seven guys?
“It’s pretty despicable stuff, and if your brain is still growing and you have very little life experience as an adult and you’re trying to digest that sort of stuff and make sense of it… I can see exactly how she can feel that way.
“She’s the kind of person who has a lot of guts actually to come out and speak her mind on this. I applaud her for it.”
