Sheryl Crow

CHOKES On Stage

"My Brain's Gone to S**t!"

You can't accuse Sheryl Crow of lip-synching, but you can say her memory sucks -- because she flat out forgot the lyrics to one of her biggest hits during a concert.

Sheryl's epic flub went down during her Saturday night gig in St. Petersburg, FL. Crow was bringing down the house with "Soak Up the Sun" ... when she suddenly brain farted.

In the video ... Crow trips over the lyrics, but like a pro, she keeps going and asks the crowd ... "Oh, what's the words?" Then adds, "It's live! Nothing on tape here!"

Crow smiled and gave the awesome excuse, "I'm 50 what can I say! My brain has gone to s**t!"

And since the song is now looped in your head ... yours has too. Thanks, Sheryl.

I'm not a huge fan of hers or anything. She's had a couple catchy songs but is not that great of a vocalist...but I applaud her sense of humor about it...and at least didn't blame the band like some other artists have. And yes, it proves her show is "Live" and not dubbed which makes me respect her even more.

if she had chemo for her breast cancer like I did, it's called 'chemo-brain' ...the chemo messes w/your concentration for quite awhile after treatment. Saw Rod Stewart back in the 80's as well as Billy Idol; they both forgot the lyrics to their songs as well.

Aww Sheryl, Don't sweat it. It's a delayed effect of chemo. If forgetting the words on occassion are the worst thing that happens in your life, Consider yourself lucky. All your fans still love you and are glad you survived.

I would have never thought she is 50 but she is blaming her memory loss on age which is insulting for other people of her age, just own up to the fact that you are human and forgot your lyrics. It happens and was happy to see she really sings live, without her recorded voice in the background. :)

She looks amazing for a 50 year old cancer survivor. I know 35 year olds who don't look that good. So, she forgot some lyrics. At least she is authentic. Love you, Cheryl!
