Sheryl Crow has been in the music industry for decades, but that doesn’t mean she understands all the ins and outs of the latest news. On September 11, Andy Cohen asked her for her opinion on Taylor Swift’s drama with her old label, Big Machine Records, and celebrity manager Scooter Braun. And even though Sheryl, 57, is signed to that same label, she admitted that she didn’t really know what’s going on.

“I’m gonna be honest with you,” the “Soak Up The Sun” singer said.  “I live with my head in a big hole. I stay out of that world.”

At the same time, she thought the general issue of masters ownership had been focused on a little too much.

“I will say one thing about masters. I signed with a record label 30 years ago and within 5 years it became owned by Interscope, and then Interscope got bought by Universal,” the “Picture” singer reminisced. “These things, that’s just the way the business goes.”
