Billie Eilish: “Watching porn at 11 broke my brain”


Billie Eilish made a shocking statement during a recent radio interview: “I think porn is a disaster. To tell the truth, I watched a lot. I started when I was something like 11 years old. I think it destroyed my brain “said the Californian singer, interviewed by the microphones of theHoward Stern Show, program that airs on the US radio Sirius XM.

Shocking words for the very tender age in which she declared that she approached pornography for the first time and shocking also for what the many pornographic videos that – by her own admission – she consumed in abundance have determined in her.

“I felt devastated” confessed the pop star, who will turn 20 in a few hours (December 18).

Porn influenced her psychological as well as her sexual sphere: “The first few times I had sex, I didn’t say no to things that wouldn’t do me any good. I did it because I thought I had to be attracted to it ”.

The reasons he started pornography

The reason why she was initially attracted to porn is unfortunately connected to the misinformation at the level of sexuality which still today is “alas” rampant.

“I thought this was how you learn how to have sex,” said the artist.

However, “learning” about sexual practices from pornography had very serious consequences for her, negatively affecting her relationship with sex.

Today she considers porn “a shame” for the degradation of the female body around which this controversial and for many deplorable form of entertainment revolves.

Although initially Billie Eilish was a supporter of pornography, today she deviates firmly from it, also because violent and abusive videos risk distorting the idea of ​​what is normal in sex but above all of what is consensual.

“At the beginning I was a supporter, I talked about it, I thought I was cool because I had no problem with it and in fact I didn’t see anything wrong with it,” she specified. But then she began to realize that those contents (very strong, violent and that in reality should have little to do with a way of living sexuality in a balanced and joyful way) “destroyed her brain and caused nightmares”, words his.

For some, pornography is – and remains – an art form, a film genre, something attributable to entertainment and even culture, in some way.

We remind you that every year even prestigious awards are given to the protagonists of the porn industry, namely the AVN AWards (which are basically the Oscars of red light cinema, the next edition of which will be held in January, as happens every year).

However, there is no doubt that porn is something dominated by men, both at the level of protagonism and production and at the target level.

Although it is now the myth that pornography is for the use and consumption of men only – consumed as it is also by many women – what is indisputable is the dominance of contents in which the female body is highly degraded.

Furthermore, just as Billie Eilish stated in her recent speech, the real evil of pornography is to contribute to distorting the relationship with sexuality, risking to pass as normal something that instead is not normal at all and should never be considered. such. We are certainly not referring to sexual practices Sui generis, bizarre and unusual, since everything is absolutely allowed if it causes pleasure to each of those who take part in it: we refer to what must or should not be perceived as consensual, a very hot topic today (like yesterday and unfortunately how we fear it will be tomorrow too and the day after tomorrow, if you don’t commit to a sudden change).

Pornography often produces violent and abusive content that damages the relationship our society must necessarily have with sex. And the relationship that society must necessarily have with women, often victims of the distorted idea of ​​sexuality and of the right of man (understood as a male man) not to consider the consent of the woman. This is what we should be fighting about with pornography.

Eilish engaged to Matthew Tyler Vorce?

Returning to Billie Eilish, for some months the rumors have wanted her to be engaged to Matthew Tyler Vorce, ten years older than her, resident in Los Angeles and “actor and writer” by profession.

In the same radio interview in which the pop star opened up on the issue of porn, she also talked about how difficult it is to start a relationship when you are very famous. For celebrities it is not as easy as it seems, in short, especially if the heart starts to beat for people not as famous as you, as in the case of Billie Eilish. Have you ever heard Matthew Tyler Vorce’s name mentioned before the singer started dating him? Here, in fact.

“When you are famous, people are terrified of you, they consider you beyond their reach,” said the artist.

In the same live broadcast, the Californian singer also spoke about Covid, which she contracted last August despite being vaccinated.

“I was terribly ill, if I hadn’t been vaccinated I would have died,” she said bluntly.

He then added that even today, after so many months, the consequences of the virus are being felt on his state of health. He hopes to be able to get back on his feet by February 3, the date on which his 2022 tour will finally be inaugurated. Happier than Ever (The dates in Europe are scheduled for next summer. Unfortunately, for now, no stage in Italy has been announced).

Recall instead that Billie Eilish will take the stage at the Glastonbury Festival, scheduled for next June, thus becoming the youngest solo singer ever to take part in the famous UK music festival.
