Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow break up

More rock star breakup news: singer Sheryl Crow has split from Tour De France racing champion Lance Armstrong. The two had been engaged since September, and had been living on a ranch in Austin, Armstrong's adopted hometown.

In November, Crow did an interview with the Associated Press in which she pointed out that celebrity magazines are more interested in seeing a couple break up than reporting on them being happy together. She said:

"When we were rumored to have split, and when our publicists called these magazines to say we haven't split, the magazines were all so disappointed because that's really what's selling, rooting for a couple and then they split. That's what sells the magazines. Why can't we just report things the way they are or see things for the good in them? ... It's an insidious energy."
