Sheryl Crow discusses Lance Armstrong’s doping admission
Singer Sheryl Crow, who dated Lance Armstrong from 2003 to 2006, is talking about her former boyfriend’s revelation that he used performance-enhancing drugs. Her comments will air Tuesday in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight.”
“I think that honesty is always the best bet and that the truth will set you free,” Crow said. “It must be really hard to walk around knowing you are not telling the truth about something. So I always contend that the truth is the best way to go.”
Crow said she watched part of Armstrong’s interview with Oprah Winfrey last week. She was with Armstrong during his final two Tour de France victories.
“I know how hard he worked to win those titles, and you know, it was hard to watch,” Crow said. “I felt bad. I felt bad for him, I felt bad for his family, and I kinda felt like the rest of America. He is a hero that we watched and looked up to and admire.”
