Billie Eilish has opened up about her relationship with porn and how it has affected her life.

The singer admitted that she first watched it when she was just 11 years old and that it warped her view on sex.

Speaking recently to Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show, the 19-year-old revealed that she used to watch a lot of 'abusive' porn and that it actually gave her nightmares.

Eilish said: "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.

"I think I had this sleep paralysis and these, like, almost night terrors/nightmares because of it.

"I think that's how they started, because I would just watch abusive BDSM and that's what I thought was attractive and it got to a point where I couldn't watch anything else, like, unless it was violent I didn't think it was attractive."

Adding: "I was a virgin, I'd never done anything and so it led to problems where, ya know, 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."

She went on: "I’m so angry that porn is so loved, and I’m so angry at myself for thinking that it was OK.

"The way that vaginas look in porn is f*****g crazy. No vaginas look like that. Women’s bodies don’t look like that. We don’t come like that."

Eilish also discussed her love life and how she's found dating quite difficult in the past.

She said: "I don’t go to stuff and flirt with people. It’s really hard to meet people when people are either terrified of you or think that you’re out of their league.

"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, the singer revealed that she is still feeling the effects of Covid.

The teen said, however, that she was thankful she got vaccinated when she did, otherwise, she wouldn't have survived it.

She told Stern: "It was bad. I mean, I didn’t die, and I wasn’t gonna die, but that does not take away from how miserable it was.

"I mean, it was terrible. I still have side effects. I was sick for, like, two months almost.

"I want it to be clear that it is because of the vaccine that I’m fine. I think if I weren’t vaccinated, I would have 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*****g horrible."
