After revealing her true identity, porn star Belle Knox became a sensation on the internet. According to Independent, Belle became more popular than Justin Bieber and Pope Francis combined.

18-year-old Belle Knox is a law student of Duke University, but she is also a porn star who has paid her school fees by acting in various adult films such as "How Do You Like It" and "Lick My Lips."

"I really enjoy sex, and I've always loved watching porn, so it just seemed like I could pay my way through college doing something I really love doing," said Belle to New York Daily News.

It was difficult for Belle to shell out $47,000-a-year tuitions fees to continue her education. She mentioned that she never had a lot of options.

"I literally just Googled, 'How to be a porn star.' It came up with all these modeling agencies, and I literally just sent in my pictures and my height and weight," explained Belle. Within days, she started getting calls for roles in adult films. After coming to Los Angeles, she started her porn career as Lauren.

"The first porn I did was absolutely nerve-racking because it was really weird to have a photographer watch me have sex. I was super self-conscious, but then I just got into it," said Belle.

She rubbished that pornography is degrading to women and a bad business because she met professional and sweet people. When she was asked about her parents, she dodged the question.

"I'm leaving my family out of this, but they are aware of what I do," said the porn star and aspiring lawyer.

Her parents still want her to be a lawyer, and she is going to make their dream come true. The daughter of a Spokane, Washington-based doctor, her real name is Miriam Weeks. She shared her story on xoJane.com on Tuesday after a friend leaked her secret to the members of the Duke Fraternity.

Belle said that people find it difficult to understand people who are into pornography as they are not always desperate or on love drugs.
