Crow finds out breakup sells

NEW YORK: Dating Lance Armstrong has given Sheryl Crow a taste of what it feels like to be part of a celebrity couple — and she’s not too crazy about it. “I think we’ve actually escaped a lot of it, because I’ve seen what happened to Brad and Jen and Nick and Jessica,” Crow told The Associated Press in a recent interview. Crow said celebrity magazines are more interested in seeing a couple break up than reporting on them being happy together.

The 43-year-old singer and Armstrong, 34, announced their engagement in September. “When we were rumoured to have split, and when our publicists called these magazines to say we haven’t split, the magazines were all so disappointed because that’s really what’s selling, rooting for a couple and then they split,” she said. “That’s what sells the magazines.”
