Sheryl Crow

I Have a Brain Tumor

6/5/2012 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0605_sheryl-crow_gettySheryl Crow just announced she has a brain tumor -- but the singer insists ... there's nothing to worry about.

50-year-old Crow told the Las Vegas Review Journal, "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor ... but it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it."

You'll recall -- Sheryl choked on stage last month in Florida, forgetting the lyrics to one of her most famous songs. She said, "I'm 50 what can I say! My brain has gone to s**t!"

It's unclear if the incident was related to her brain tumor.

The tumor is what's called a meningioma -- a growth that develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord.

According to Sheryl's rep, it's a very common condition ... and the rock star is happy, healthy, and doing great. The rep didn't say if the singer plans to pursue surgery.

It's not Crow's first cancer scare either -- Crow successfully battled breast cancer back in 2006.

We got Sheryl out just last week at LAX and she looked great.

In other news, Lance Armstrong is breaking up with her again, even though they are not dating. He just wants to make sure he get's away from any chick that has cancer in his life.

I hope she stays healthy.

But what is it with celebrities thinking we need to know every little detail about their lives? If she is going to be just fine, why would we need to know about it in the first place? Any ingrown hair issues you want to tell us about?

And btw, if I hear ONE more "I was bullied when I was a kid story", I'm gonna throw up.

If she is having such memory issues that she got an MRI, and then found a tumor, maybe it is something to worry about. If it isn't that then there would have to be something else wrong. Early Onset Alzheimers?
