3 broken engagements better than 3 divorces: Sheryl Crow
She might have struck out three times in the game of love but Sheryl Crow is still hoping for a home run.
Despite her age, the 52-year-old Grammy Award winner does want to eventually have a ring on her finger.
"Hey, I would love to get married — I'm still old-fashioned," she said in the interview published in the August issue of US women's magazine.
The US singer-songwriter opened up about her love life and talked about her relatively unsuccessful track record of relationships with high-profile celebs in a recent interview with Good Housekeeping.
But, all her engagements with exes, including US actor Owen Wilson, road racing cyclist Lance Armstrong and singer-songwriter Eric Clapton, eventually ended because, perhaps, they didn't dim their light enough for hers to shine?
"I had always gone out with guys who were highly successful, which would seem like it would put me at an equal level," Crow told the magazine.
"But what ends up happening is that one of you becomes smaller - and it was always me. It's always the woman. I mean, I don't know if it's always the woman, but I do think that sometimes in order for one person's light to shine, everyone else has to dim theirs," she added, according to ABC News.
Even though it's still on her list to tie the knot, the All I Wanna Do singer doesn't think that marriage is "the be-all and end-all."
Poking fun at her own marital status, she added: "It's better to have three broken engagements than three divorces."
Crow adopted two sons, Wyatt, seven, in 2007 and Levi, four, in 2010, E! Online reported.
I guess if marriage doesn't end up on the cards, at least she has parenthood.
