Sheryl Crow has opened up about the benign brain tumor she was diagnosed with last November. In a new interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the 50-year-old singer says, "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor."

Crow says she has no complications from the tumor, which is known as a meningioma. "It's benign, so I don't have to worry about it," she notes. 

A rep for Crow has emphasized as much to E! News, stating that Crow is not ill and that "everything is fine." "It was a random mention during the interview," said the rep. "It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."

Crow overcame breast cancer in 2006, after undergoing a minimally invasive surgery and chemotherapy.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
