The Crow Flies But the Comments Don't

2/25/2009 1:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sheryl Crow was in no mood to talk about her now-famous performance for the pampered peeps at Northern Trust as she landed in Washington D.C. yesterday.

Sheryl Crow: Click to watch
Seemed like a fair subject -- Congress is in a rage after seeing our story about the millions of bucks Northern Trust blew last week on partying and golf. And speaking of rage, get a load of Sheryl's assistant.

Our sources around Crow's camp tell us that Sheryl Crow had now prior knowledge as to where the funding for her performance was coming from or that Northern Trust had even been given any government bailout monies.
"Sheryl simply played a concert that was arranged through an outside media company and had no direct relations with Northern Trust in negotiating the terms of her performance. I cannot disclose what Sheryl Crow was paid to perform in LA for Northern Trust, however it was within the exact same guidelines of what she would be paid for any private party performance. People are making way too much out of this on Sheryl's part because all she did was show up and sing...nothing more", says Will Estell, President of bcb Media.

We have also been told that Sheryl Crow plans to retreat to her vacation home near Destin and Seaside Florida for a few days to let this whole scandel kind of die down. Oh, the perils of fame, and how those in the limelight often get dragged into things that are actually none of their doings.

Money's money. How can Northern Trust take bailout money if they have money to pay Sheryl and give exorbitant baggie gifts and throw a huge bash.
What in the hell is there to celebrate in this economic climate? the stupidity of the American people for giving Northern Trust the extra cash to afford Sheryl and all the rest?

Sorry, you've got a weak excuse there.
Try another one.

Go figure.
Sheryl's going to another vacation home to hide out until the scandal dies down?
That means she must have at least 3 homes -- the ranch, the one in LA, and the one in Florida.
She must really be suffering over this.

AND Now that she does know where the money came from, with all that she clearly has, how much could it hurt her to make a statement of support to the American people by giving this particular paycheck back to her fellow citizens?

REally -- I don't feel sorry for Sheryl Crow.
Sheryl, here's some lines for a song for you:
I used to like you, but now I don't think so.

Everytime I read another post by you individuals who are bleating-and-braying over being unable to afford mortgage payments or that your home is in foreclosure now, that causes me to burst out laughing. Karma is a bitch, right? Weren't you the same insensitive and unconcerned individuals who behave abusively toward the elderly people and disabled-to-work people who are forced to sleep on the city/town sidewalk because there aren't enough affordable apartments for persons aged 60+ nation-wide?

The unreasonable high apartment rent needs to come way down to an affordable $300.00/month for a one-bedroom apt. Do you even know how meager a pension check is from the government for elderly persons? Donate generously to the Meals On Wheels program for the old and disabled people and watch God's blessings return to you. Perhaps once again you will have a roof over your own head!

No, their money is their money. And a contract is a contract. Their sponsorship of the tournament was part of a 5 year contract. I suppose they can just break that. Did anyone even bother to read the statement issued by Northern Trust before deciding they need to be put out of business? And this tournament raises millions for charity. Barney Frank is a complete idiot, his loosening of the mortgage standards at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac helped create this economic mess.

she's a hypocrite.

can't she see the suffering around her?

she should hurry up and do some damage control by giving that money back to the people.
it's clearly stolen cash. Can't she see that? or does she have blinders on while she sits in the sun tanning herself?

are you a representative of Northern Trust?

if so, do you and your colleagues have any idea what's going on around the planet in terms of the economy?
what were you all thinking throwing a party? and when did a bank's money become their own? whose money is it?
the people's money, dopey. the money belongs to the people who have "trusted" the bank with it.

Northern Trust should pay the bailout money back as should Sheryl Crow. this is no time to party, my friend.

Lillian Landers - I think you are delusional. This story is about Sheryl Crow. What the heck are you yacking about? That tirade makes NOOOOO sense. You don't even know who you are writing to. Making crazy leaps in logic makes you a fool.

Shame on you, Northern Trust!

You're not worthy of the people's trust.

Not at all.
Shery, be smart -- get rid of that dirty money. Donate it to one of your "causes."

I use to respect her. I feel anyone who involves themselves with this type of crap is just as guilty of robbing tax payers. She must be desparate
