As has previously reported, Crow recently revealed to the Las Vegas Review Journal that she has a benign brain tumor.

“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor,” Crow said. “I haven’t really talked about it,” she continued. “In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it.”

The singer admitted 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 said at the time.

This isn’t the first health scare for Crow. Back in 2006, she successfully battled breast cancer.
