Grammy winner Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumour.
The singer/songwriter revealed that she knew something was wrong when she started to lose her memory, resulting in Crow getting herself checked out.
Speaking to Doug Elfman of Las Vegas Review-Journal, Crow explained: "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumour.
"And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong.' I haven't really talked about it."
She added: "In November, I found out I have a brain tumour. But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit."
Crow's rep confirmed to E! News on Tuesday (5th June) that the breast cancer survivor has a common form of brain tumour called a meningioma.
"Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI.
"[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."
There is no word on whether Sheryl's tumour will require surgery or further treatment, but she seemed in great spirits during the interview, even making reference to a recent memory-loss moment at a concert.
Crow revealed to the Review-Journal that just last month she forgot part of her hit Soak Up the Sun while onstage in Florida. She told fans: "I'm 50, what can I say? My brain's gone to s**t."
