Selena Gomez has unleashed a tough alter ego in a new promo for her hosting gig at the 2011 MTV's European Music Awards.

Gomez, who hosted MTV's Video Music Awards Pre-Show, is planning to fly to Northern Ireland to host the MTV EMAs at the Odyssey Arena on November 6. In the promo, Gomez swaps between her regular sweet facade and a feisty chola-inspired character.

The Award Show is set to air in the United States on TR3s: MTV at 6 p.m. ET.

Gomez rose to fame with the Disney Channel series "The Wizards of Waverly Place" and is also known for her pop music and high-profile relationship with fellow teen singer Justin Bieber. After the two stepped out together publicly last year, several of his fans reportedly posted death threats and other nasty online messages to Gomez, although no legal action was taken.

Earlier in the week, Gomez was granted a restraining order against a man with a history of mental illness who authorities say had made a death threat against her.

The MTV EMAs will feature performances from the likes of Lady Gaga, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Coldplay and Bruno Mars, while presenters include Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWOWW" Farley from the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore."
