The singer originally revealed the news herself to a Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist who asked about her recently forgetting some lyrics onstage. She responded, "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. But it gives me a fit."

Crow's representative confirmed the news to E!, adding, "Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI. [Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."
