There’s certainly nothing sweet about the newly sexed up Gabriella Cilmi.

The 18-year-old star, who rose to fame with hit ‘Sweet About Me,’ is bursting back onto the music scene with a feisty new sound and an even feistier new attitude.

Her new single ‘On A Mission’ is a response to the backlash she suffered after the ARIA Awards in 2008. At the time media reports speculated that the pop princess was drunk after her erratic acceptance speeches for six gongs.

The hot brunette, who’s since splashed out over $400,000 for her raunchy new vid, tells The Sun, “I’m not a little girl anymore. I’ve grown up, and I’m ready to fight to get what I want.

“The whole album is about me becoming an adult, becoming stronger. I want to really switch it on, smother myself in gold paint and transform into someone else.”

Fans can get their mits on Gab’s new single on March 8th and new album 'Ten' on March 22nd.

Watch Gabriella go head-to-head with her uber fan in the 'Fan Vs Band' video below.
