Sheryl Crow is the Latest Celeb to Trash Her Exes

Maybe dating a celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Grammy-winning singer Sheryl Crow, 52, recently told Good Housekeeping magazine that her famous exes made her feel “smaller.”

Crow, whose previous boyfriends include Eric Clapton, Owen Wilson and Lance Armstrong, didn’t necessarily bad mouth the men per se, but she admitted that having two stars in a relationship can be difficult.

“I had always gone out with guys who were highly successful, which would seem like it would put me at an equal level,” the single mother-of-two told the magazine. “But what ends up happening is that one of you becomes smaller — and it was always me. It’s always the woman. I mean, I don’t know if it’s always the woman, but I do think sometimes in order for one person’s light to shine, everyone else has to dim theirs.”

Crow, who has sold 50 million albums worldwide, isn’t cynical about finding love, however.

“I would love to get married. I’m still old-fashioned. But I don’t think marriage is the be-all and end-all. It’s better to have three broken engagements than three divorces.”

So, what’s her dating motto now?

“Embrace the idea of only having equals in your life, and you’ll see your relationships change.”
