Sheryl Crow Reveals She Has Benign Brain Tumor
The 50-year-old mother of two revealed in an interview with the Las Vegas Review that she has a benign brain tumor.
“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI and I found out I have a brain tumor,” the “Everyday is a Winding Road” singer said, adding that it was discovered in November of last year.
Though she didn’t go into more detail about the health concern, the ex-partner of cyclist Lance Armstrong added: “It’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”
Despite the seriousness of the situation, the upbeat singer even cracked a few jokes in the interview:
While telling a story about a performance at the Hard Rock Hotel back in the 1990s, she said:
“I have a history of forgetting my lyrics. Not only could I not remember the first line [to ‘A Change Would Do You Good’], I couldn’t remember the first line to any of the verses. I started laughing so hard! And I looked over at my guitar player, and he’s bent over like he’s gonna just start peeing.”
Her rep told People: “The tumor is a meningioma, which is typically benign and develops from the brain and spinal cord linings. It should not require surgery.”
In 2006, revealed that she was battling breast cancer, but has since made a full recovery.
