Sheryl Crow diagnosed with brain tumour

Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. The singer told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the diagnosis was confirmed last November, when she consulted a specialist after finding that she was forgetting lyrics.

"I haven't really talked about it before," she said. "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. 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'."

Crow said that she had been forgetting lyrics thoroughout her career, but it had been more noticeable in recent shows. She is no stranger to health scares. She was treated for breast cancer in 2006, but the current problem is not related to that, and is not life-threatening.

She released her last album, 100 Miles From Memphis in 2010, and is working on new material. "I don't even have a record deal," she said. "I probably will sign a record deal, though. I like the opportunity to be on radio." Crow has been working on an original musical score for a stage adaptation of the 1982 Barry Levinson movie Diner.

The show will open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco in October, before transferring to Broadway in 2013. "Our team is now ready to meet our next collaborator," Crow told the Hollywood Reporter, "the theatregoers at the Curran Theatre."
