Sheryl Crow has no plans to go under the knife.

"When you shoot your face with Botox and stuff, you rob yourself of your ability to have youthful expressions, and that's why sometimes people look a lot older," Crow tells Health magazine.

Despite some toughs time in recent years (in 2006, Crow split from her fiancé Lance Armstrong and then successfully battled breast cancer), the rock star says she feels better than ever ...

"I am definitely embracing aging...," says Crow, 47. "I also have never spent a lot of time in front of the mirror. So as far as I know, I look like I'm 24, which is how I feel."

However, visits to the doctor are still nerve-wracking. "In between checkups, I rarely think about having had cancer. I am reminded of it because I get to speak of it a lot," she says. "But when I go in, it's a sobering moment when you're waiting for the results."

Crow also talked about her days are one of Michael Jackson's backup singers in the late eighties. "I learned so much from watching him, about professionalism, about uniqueness, about artistry—things that set him apart from the rest of us," she says. "I got to see some of the crazier stuff, too—the fans, the kind of undoing his identity and the re-doing of his identity, and how lonesome that must have felt."
