Sheryl Crow admits that her two young songs have had an impact on her current relationship with an unnamed producer. “I’ve been in the situation where I’ve been involved with people and their kids, and if the relationship doesn’t work out, it’s heartbreak,” the singer songwriter tells Prevention magazine. “So I’m keeping the relationship friend-based when we’re around the kids.” Check out a preview at prevention.com.
Sheryl Crow performed at Borderline in London on Thursday night, the venue of her first London show in 1994. She told the Evening Standard: “We had a few days off from the tour and wanted to do something small and special. London for me is such a musical place. I’ve always had special gigs here.” The performance provided the opportunity for Una Healy of The Saturdays, who had seen her concert last week and said the singer songwriter was “my idol since I was 13 and started playing guitar and writing songs, such an inspiration”, to meet Sheryl. The 48-year-old posted a backstage photo of the pair and told her Twitter followers (@SherylCrow):
I got to meet Una Healy from The Saturdays…here we are 10mins before showtime

Sheryl Crow partners with ABC to reveal their new Sunday night programming and gave fans a sneak peek of a special performance of the Jackson 5 classic ‘I Want You Back’ in a new promo video for the station’s red-carpet season premiere event, which will air on the network this Sunday. “If I’m on stage when those shows are on, I will go to ABC.com and, in my bunk, in the tour bus, be watching those shows,” she says of guilty pleasures Brothers and Sisters and Desperate Housewives, which features ‘I Want You Back’ in its national promo campaign.
Sheryl also posted a note to the network’s website explaining her history with the legendary Michael Jackson, for whom she got her start singing backup on his 1987 Bad tour. “The influence of that period looms large in my career and life,” Sheryl writes. “The experience was profound beyond words.”
‘I Want You Back’ is featured on Crow’s latest album ‘100 Miles From Memphis’, which pays homage to the music she grew up with.
The promo video at ABC.com has since been removed.

Sheryl Crow recently visited the MLB.com Studios for a live session, where the singer songwriter performed ‘Summer Day’, ‘Our Love is Fading’ and ‘Peaceful Feeling’. Crow also talked about her new album, baseball and Stand Up To Cancer. “I love my job,” Crow said. “I look at my life and think, it’s such a compelling time to be an artist. There are so many things to write about — and so many things we all share in common from events to emotion. It’s great to be a writer. The celebrity part of it for me is more challenging because I am a private person, and have had very public relationships — which I feel not only suffered from being so public, but also became sort of overshadowing. I really love being in Nashville, I love being able to raise my kids there and have anonymity, so to speak, because there’s no paparazzi or anything like that. To have a normal life there, and to be able to hold my personal life and my relationships sacred and not have them be part of the press circus.” Check it out at MLB.com.

Samantha Ronson ripped Sheryl Crow’s new album ‘100 Miles from Memphis’ hours ago, telling her Twitter followers (@samantharonson):
I’m not exactly sure why I bought the new Sheryl Crow record, but I’d like my money back and the time spent listening to the record. Awful!
For real, I’m offended by how bad it is. She ruined songs by Citizen Cope, Terence Trent D’Arby and The Jackson 5. What happened to her?
She should have faded out in the country genre – as she was – no need to ruin blue eyed soul for the rest of em. Sorry – but I was a huge fan!
