So…is Phillip Phillips going under the knife or not? E News is reporting that Phillip is receiving “alternative” treatment to surgery, but that’s NOT what the Idol winner told Mix 104.1’s Greg Daniels in a brief interview today.

“I’m surviving, I’m still alive right now,” Phillip told the Boston-based radio station.  “I’m hurting a little bit and everything, but I’m hopefully getting my surgery done really, really soon.”

Did Phillip miss the “you’re not getting surgery, bud” memo? Or is Eonline just plain wrong?  Or what? Phillip insists he’ll be 100 percent by the time the American Idol tour begins in July.

As for the album, Phillip says they’ve begun working on it a “little bit” and that fans can expect a release  in November.

Listen to the entire interview at Mix 104.1.
