Sheryl Crow - Sheryl Crow Wept Over Callous Rape Remark

Rocker Sheryl Crow broke down in tears after a blogger likened her singing to a rape attack.

The All I Wanna Do hitmaker rarely reads online comments about herself as she fears critics can be too savage, and her determination to stay away from Internet reviews was strengthened when she read a nasty blog.

She tells British magazine Seven, "I had a song come out - it was in reference to a Hank Williams tribute record - and somebody blogged that it sounded like someone being raped in an open field. It was so heinous. I sobbed. I never read that stuff, but I happened to catch that one thing. And I sobbed - and it wasn't even what he said. It was the hatred.

"And we've given everybody the opportunity to have an anonymous platform. We've given them momentum - and a community with which to associate. It used to be that if you were like that, you might be an outsider. Now everybody has found their people - who are haters."
