When Grammy Award winning musician Sheryl Crow was worried about memory loss last year, she went to the doctor, asked for an MRI, and discovered she had a brain tumour.
And fortunately, it was diagnosed benign.
“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). And I found out I have a brain tumor,” she said. “And I was like, ‘See? I knew there was something wrong.”
“I haven’t really talked about it,” Sheryl told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”
Sheryl, who battled breast cancer in 2006, made headlines last month when she forgot the lyrics to her song ‘Soak Up the Sun’ during a concert in Florida.
At the time, she told fans: “I’m 50, what can I say? My brain’s gone to…” And she later told a newspaper: “Not only could I not remember the first line, 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 going to just start peeing.”
Sheryl did not speak of any treatment she was undergoing but noted that she was happy and healthy.
