Sheryl Crow opened up in a recent interview and revealed that her doctors have discovered a benign brain tumor, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI,” Crow said. “And I found out I have a brain tumor.”

“And I was, like, ‘See? I knew there was something wrong,’” she added.

“It’s benign,” the 50-year-old artist continued. “So I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”

This isn’t Crow’s first bout with a serious medical condition; she has spoken publicly about beating breast cancer back in 2006.

It wasn’t all serious news, though. Crow also told the paper about one night in the ’90s when, after forgetting the lyrics to “A Change Will Do You Good” at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, “a whole bunch of us wound up at a strip club. It was Brad Pitt, and Mick Jagger and Sting! It was just cuckoo crazy, and I was still just getting started, you know. I was, like, ‘Wow, Vegas. This is more than I could even dream of.’ ”
