Billie Eilish is never afraid to share her opinions. The “Bad Guy” singer has opened up more about her personal beliefs lately. She is becoming more comfortable in her skin.
On a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Billie spoke out about her thoughts on the pornography industry. She said an early exposure to explicit and violent materials stunted her development. Eilish said viewing porn at age 11 gave her nightmares, sleep paralysis, and anxiety in the bedroom.
A former member of the porn industry has taken sides on the matter. Randy Spears was a director and star in the adult industry for decades. He spoke to TMZ and said that Billie is completely justified in her thinking.
Spears said that pornography is too much for children to understand. He told the outlet that early exposure to such materials can have negative effects that last for years. Randy gave Billie major props for taking a stand.
The advent of new technology has made it far easier for children to access pornography, according to Randy Spears. Having a role model with the influence on young audience that Billie Eilish does could be a positive. It has never been easier for kids to access the dark corners of the internet. It’s also never been easier for influential stars to share a positive message.
Billie Eilish opened a lot of eyes with her stand against the porn industry. She bravely shared a traumatic experience in the hopes that others won’t suffer the same fate. Even long-tenured veterans of the adult entertainment industry can agree with that.
