Sheryl Crow hit by real estate crash, house auctioned
Housing Wire ^ | Wednesday, November 24th, 2010, 2:13 pm

Posted on 11/25/2010 7:29:03 AM PST by DeaconBenjamin

Singer Sheryl Crow has become the latest celebrity to get caught in the real estate crash. She can’t sell her sprawling Nashville mansion, so she has gone to the extreme — putting it up for auction at a bargain basement price.

Like so many stars who made it big, Crow splurged on huge house with top of the line features. But since the real estate market crash, they have become white elephants.

Now Crow’s house is bargain priced. The bidding has topped out at $1.1 million with the online auction set to end Nov. 24.

Why does she need to sell? I thought she had enough money to last her a lifetime.

Butt... can't she pay for her house with all of the money she saves on toilet paper?

Sorry, that was a nasty crack. I apologize.

Yes, and it will include instructions on how to use them to save the planet. Only one square each time you go to the bathroom.

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching tv
I don’t have digital
I don’t have diddly squat
It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what you’ve got

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ‘em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun

I’ve got a crummy job
It don’t pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ‘em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun

I’m gonna soak up the sun
While it’s still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

Don’t have no master suite
I’m still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I’m the one who has the key
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ‘em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I’m looking up
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on

ROCK ON Sheryl. Soak up some sun in the commune.

I think she lied about using only ONE SHEET of toilet paper per bathroom session. Have you seen the price of TP lately?

She can’t sell her sprawling Nashville mansion

Sounds like an awfully big carbon footprint for a gal who wants to ration TP. Guess she takes after her hypocrite neighbor, Weird Al.

The dumb liberal bought the house for $4-6 million and sells for $1 million.

Now no one is buying her music and her concerts are drawing fewer and fewer old fans. What a drag it must be for her.

Why does she need to sell?

She is trying to lower her carbon footprint and can't buy credits from Gore anymore.

This whole toilet paper thing was so stupid, I couldn’t stop crying. I can’t believe the enviros are so hypocritically stupid. If she’s so darn worried about the environment, why in the world would one person need the sized home she bought? You’d think she’d have bought a smallish house with lots of land, where the deer and the cantaloupe play...lol(that’s what my daughter says)

She had cancer and it could be that the expenses of that burned through her savings.

Plus she hasn’t had a HIT song for a while, so her income can’t be what it was.

In the past she could have bought her house for cash several times over, so she must have borrowed big against it and now it’s probably gone.

That’s my guess anyway.

Poor Sheryl Crow - taking a combination hit from the recession AND fewer ticket sales after bashing the values of half her audience.

She sure is one shrewd businesswoman - NOT!!!

I’ so tired of Counrty Music shows having her on,
nothing is special about her voice,

and her hatred of Bush is as nasty the middle of her ass.

Willy Nelson was nuts too but he could sing.

“The bidding has topped out at $1.1 million with the online auction..”

1.1 mil. There is a McMansion down the street that is boarded up. It was very nicely built and professionally boarded up. It is situated under high tension power lines in a solidly blue-collar neighboorhood. The last price asked for this house was 1.1mil. How torrid it all got before it crashed...

Her first CD was great. Supposedly, she wrote all the songs. There were rumors of a co-writer that wasn’t credited. She hasn’t written anything near the caliber of the first CD since that time (at least, from what I’ve heard) and have resorted to doing covers.

What really irritated me was seeing a video of her singing a Carter family gospel song (can’t remember which one now) on the Gospel Music Channel. What qualifies her to sing gospel???

Ok, done now.

“hypocritically stupid”... Exactly. I call it smug imbecility. Look at the compact florescent light bulb idiocy. They ban the incandescent bulb and push the mercury-filled junk upon us.

Sheryl Crow does not practice what she preaches. That’s because she thinks she is important and above us “little people.”

Most of the glitteratti know each other, and just like the Maddoff scheme hit many in the upper crust cirlcles, I'd bet a few rolls of tp that Crow had money invested with Bono's investment group Elevation Partners
I saw a news clip a while back that said they had the WORST investment savvy ever seen....losing cash by the boat-load. I wonder if Crow had any money there?

I think she lied about using only ONE SHEET of toilet paper per bathroom session. Have you seen the price of TP lately?

In addition, have you noticed that the size of TP is shrinking?

During the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644 AD), it was recorded in 1393 that 720,000 sheets of toilet paper (two by three feet in size) were produced for the general use of the Imperial court at the capital of Nanjing.

Ok, well, maybe historical shrinkage is pretty drastic, but just in the last few months, the length of the rolls (measured from end to end of the cardboard tube) has shrunk by about half an inch. Plus, fewer sheets are being put on each roll. I looked for a picture to link, but couldn't find one. I had found a whole website (with pics) dedicated to the recent shrinkage of various products, but don't remember what it's called.

I wonder if Sheryl Crow is still able to get away with using a single sheet? I can't say I have any sympathy for her. The annoying nature of her singing was second only to that of Alanis Morrisett--who would never have gained any kind of fame in a rational world.
