Singer's rep confirms that the singer has a benign condition called a meningioma.

Grammy winner Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. The singer/songwriter revealed the startling news to an unsuspecting Las Vegas reporter during an otherwise lighthearted 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 told Doug Elfman of Las Vegas Review-Journal on Friday at the Mandalay Bay hotel. "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 tumor. 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 (June 5) that the breast cancer survivor has a common form of brain tumor called a meningioma.
"Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI," the singer's rep told E! News. "[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 Crow's tumor 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 sh--."
