Grammy winning singer Sheryl Crow has had a most difficult year, and she shared it all with Oprah Winfrey on her talk show.
Year 2006 began with her engagement to champion cyclist Lance Armstrong and they broke it off just weeks before she was diagnosed with breast cancer. But Crow said she was grateful for all that happened to her, reports ananova.com.
"I've had so many people say to me, 'Gosh, you know, everything's really gone wrong for you this year. And it took me going through that to realise that everything really went right for me," she said.
Crow was with Armstrong for two years and the split was public.
She added: "Even though it's not, perhaps, a functional relationship, the love doesn't stop. I want to remember every moment of what was going on at that time because we talk about defining moments. But I think nothing can define you. They're all refining moments. You're constantly refining yourself and refining your life."
