Had breast cancer
Crow explained that she got breast cancer at the end of one of the relationships and it was a difficult period.
"When I came through it, I was like, 'You know what? I'd still be in that relationship had I not had breast cancer," she continued.

Didn't want a documentary about her life
The "Picture" songstress disclosed that she was reluctant to have a documentary about herself because growing up, she always thought such things were for the dead.
However, it dawned on her that she had a story to share with the world after an illustrious career spanning 34 years of what she calls "touring and playing and having a life."
"Being my age now, it feels a little bit like a privilege and honor to be able to sit down and say, ‘People who are very visible and who are doing high-profile work, they’re still people at the end of the day.," she posited.
Crow reiterated that a lot has changed over the years and even people like her who are generally private find it necessary to share their stories.
