Even the most talented of singers struggle with sickness and losing their voice, and unfortunately Demi Lovato had to deal with that as she celebrated her the release of her latest LP, Tell Me You Love Me, at the official iHeartRadio Album Release Party in New York Saturday night (Oct. 7). But being the superstar she is, the 25-year-old singer completely owned it.

After starting things off with "Cool For The Summer," Lovato began her power ballad "Stone Cold." Despite the challenging range in the song, Lovato was pushing through it no problem -- until the very end. As she attempted to belt out the final major note, her raspy voice wasn't going to let it happen. Rather than pretending it was all good, Lovato immediately dropped the F-bomb and threw up her arms with a laugh and a smile, "I don't know what to do."

When it came time for her to chat with event host and Z100 radio personality Elvis Duran, she made the moment even more applaudable: "That's what we call not lip-syncing," she quipped. Later elaborating on being completely honest with her fans, Lovato said, "I have no filter day to day in my life when I'm not on stage. And I have no filter on stage either, and I think that's the way to go because it just creates an honest relationship with my fans. I have a connection with my fan base that I don't think a lot of artists have with their fan bases -- it's incredibly special and I think it's because of that honesty."

And of course, her loyal Lovatics were right there to support Lovato for handling the whole thing like a champ -- even though she was a little embarrassed for cursing on national radio -- and her moment of struggle turned into a moment of praise for simply staying real.

And for the record, she sounded amazing throughout the rest of the night. Take a look at a few other no-struggle clips.
