Paparazzi drove Sheryl Crow out of Hollywood
Sheryl Crow left Hollywood for rural Tennessee because she grew tired of the paparazzi.
The singer/songwriter has gone all country since relocating to the Nashville area and she reveals she made the big move to get away from the photographers who used to make her life a misery.
She tells The Tennesseean newspaper, "One of the grandest things about living here is getting to be in my line of work, and getting to have my kids and myself have a normal life.
"Celebrity is tantamount in Los Angeles, and it's not here, and I think celebrity and fame have done a disservice to artistry. In this community, family is the most important thing, and privacy rates way up there... I don't think the community here would allow something like paparazzi everywhere."
