For years on end now, she has been experiencing memory loss. In fact, the symptoms went as far back as the 1990s when she forgot the lyrics to her hit, “A Change Would Do You Good” while singing in a show in Las Vegas.
In fact, while she was on stage in Florida just last month, she forgot the words to “Soak Up The Sun” and told the crowd casually, “I’m 50. What can I say! My brain has gone to sh*t!”:

All jokes aside, what Sheryl Crow didn’t expect was a problem that was more serious that what it seemed, having previously thought that her hectic schedule contributed to her ailments.
Today, however, she reveals that she was diagnosed with a brain tumor last year. And this is happening to her just a few years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she overcame with minor surgery and radiation therapy.
On her current health predicament, Sheryl told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “I haven’t really talked about it. 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.”
“I was worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). And I found out that I have a brain tumor. And I was like, See? I knew there was something wrong”, she added.
Oh no. We wish you a speedy recovery, Sheryl. We’re pretty sure the entire music industry is rooting for you. Get well soon!
