Sheryl Crow Reveals Having Brain Tumor

Sheryl Crow has a benign brain tumor, the singer revealed in a new interview.

“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor,” Crow tells the Las Vegas Review Journal. The singer’s rep says that the Grammy winner, 50, is healthy and happy. The tumor is a meningioma, which is typically benign and develops from the brain and spinal cord linings. It should not require surgery.

Crow, who has two young sons, says she recently forgot some of the words to her song “Soak Up the Sun” while performing in Florida. “I’m 50, what can I say? My brain’s gone to [expletive],” she cracked at the time.


Crow battled breast cancer in 2006. “I think it was a great release for me, just going through the experience,” she told PEOPLE that year.  ”It’s what you do with the experience that really defines who you become … I let go of a lot of the pressure I used to put on myself.”

We’re glad to know that the tumor is benign and we’re pretty sure a lot of people are cheering her on. Readers, feel free to express your well-wishes and encouragement to Sheryl Crow in the comment box below!

‘Octomom’ Poses Nude for Magazine to Pay Bills

Financial struggles have led “Octomom” Nadya Suleman to pose semi-nude in photographs to run alongside a paid interview in a British magazine, her attorney said Tuesday.

With 14 children to care for, Suleman can’t hold down a regular job to pay bills, lawyer Jeff Czech said. In photos posted to TMZ.com and published in Britain’s Closer magazine, Suleman wears panties and little else. In an interview with TMZ’s television show, Suleman said she didn’t expect the photos to reach American readers so quickly, but she’s not ashamed of posing for the magazine.

“I’m doing what I need to do to take care of my kids,” Suleman said. Czech declined to disclose how much Suleman was paid for the photo shoot and interview.

When Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she was an unemployed single mother who already had six other children. All her children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments. Her octuplets are the world’s longest-surviving set.


Since the birth, she has cut deals with media outlets and posed in tabloid photo spreads to earn a living. She has promoted spaying and neutering for an animal rights group and gotten beat up in a celebrity boxing match. In 2009, Suleman declined a million-dollar offer to appear in pornography. Last year, she told Oprah Winfrey she was addicted to having children and called herself stupid for her financial problems.
