After surviving a very public battle with breast cancer, Sheryl Crow revealed in June that she had a benign brain tumour. And in an interview with her friend Kate Couric today, the 50-year-old entertainer said she believes her mobile phone may have been to blame for the tumor.

‘There are no doctors that will confirm that,’ Crow said on the premiere of Couric’s new syndicated talk show Katie.

‘But I do have a theory that it’s possible that it’s related to that. I used to spend hours on the archaic old cell phones.’

Crow looked fantastic for the cameras, turning up for the interview in tight burnt orange jeans, a white shirt and fitted black jacket.

Her hair highlighted blonde and styled in soft waves around her face, the Soak Up The Sun singer told Couric that before her brain tumor was correctly diagnosed, she thought she may have had early onset Alzheimer’s disease, as she started to forget song lyrics and her brain was ‘mushy’.

‘I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumour,’ she said in the interview.

‘And I was, like, ”See? I knew there was something wrong.”

‘I haven’t really talked about it… But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it,’ she said.

But the singer admitted that discovering she had a brain tumor ‘was definitely a sobering moment’.

The nine-time Grammy winner also spoke about life as a single mother and her very public split from cyclist Lance Armstrong.

Viewers of the show saw footage of Crow with her sons Wyatt, who is five, and two-year-old Levi.

Crow announced in May 2007 that she had adopted newborn Wyatt, and in mid-2010 she announced the adoption of her second child.

Crow’s decision to become a mother followed a tumultuous period in the entertainer’s life.

She began dating Lance Armstrong in 2003, and the couple announced their engagement in September 2005, but had separated by early the following year.

Shortly after the split, Crow was treated for breast cancer with surgery and radiation.

Last month it became public that Crow had been interviewed by officials as part of the long-running Lance Armstrong doping investigation.

The musician was roped into the scandal last year, when she provided information to federal agents as they were preparing a case against the seven-time Tour de France champion.

Mr Armstrong was stripped of his titles in July after he announced he would stop fighting accusations that he used illegal techniques over the course of his career.
