Demi Lovato is having her tonsils out this summer.
The singer is set to undergo the operation to remove the tissue from her throat later this year in the midst of promoting her new album 'Demi' and ahead of the next series of 'The X Factor' USA and she admits her hectic schedule and surgery could stop her from touring.
Speaking in a 'Live From MTV' interview, Demi said: "Actually, this summer I have to get my tonsils out ... I'm not sure if this year is the best opportunity to [tour] because 'X Factor' keeps me so busy."
In a bid to be brave, Demi aims to go under the knife without any anaesthetic, but isn't sure whether her plan will pan out as she hopes.
She quipped: "I'm gonna do it without painkillers, though, 'cause I'm a boss. I say that now!"
