Adult entertainment website Pornhub has slammed media reports that Billie Eilish became the most searched person on the site on December 18, the day she turned 18. The report was based on a tweet by @reydior.

Corey Price, the vice president of Pornhub, slammed the report for relying on a baseless tweet as their sole source of information. He also expressed surprise that they did not perform the required due diligence to verify the information. 

"The tweet from @reydior, which was used as their sole source of information for their article, purports Billie Elish as a top search on Pornhub the day she turned 18. That tweet was blatantly false. Billie has never been a top search on Pornhub, ever," Price told MEA WorldWide.

"It’s a shame they didn’t do their due diligence and verify any of this before writing their article. In fact, all they had to do was scroll down in that tweet thread to this tweet by @reydior clarifying her original tweet. They also could have reached out to us directly and we would have been more than happy to verify/clarify anything so as to avoid any confusion. We hope they do next time before writing ‘news’ articles riddled with falsities,” he added.

Billie is one of the few teen artists in the 21st century who achieved heights of fame due to her golden voice instead of revealing skin or portraying herself as a sex symbol.

The insanely talented 18-year-old sensation from Los Angeles has become one of the most streamed artists on Earth. With her characteristic sound coupled with her give-no-fucks, take-no-prisoners personality, she is all set to dominate the music industry for many years to come.

Another aspect, inseparable from her musical persona, is her sartorial statements. Billie's fans totally "dig" her outlandish appearance, which may be otherwise construed as disorienting or disruptive for a Billboard chart-topper.

She is often seen changing her hair to different shades of blue, while sporting streetwear and tomboyish outfits which she famously describes as "super-cheap meets fancy." Concocting strange combinations, Billie is often seen wearing spiked necklaces coupled with neon tracksuits by Louis Vuitton. More than that, her punk-glam-rap style rejects the sexy selfie cliché to complement her genre-bending music.
