There's a photo Britney Spears doesn't want her millions of teenybopper fans to see.

It shows the blond pop tart with a cigarette in her hand as she relaxes on the balcony of her hotel room in Sydney, Australia. 

Moments before the picture was snapped, Britney, 20, spotted the lensman and made a dash inside to hide. But it was too late. 

Last night, Britney's spokeswoman issued a terse "no response" when asked about the sexy hitmaker's smoking and whether it might encourage her followers to light up. 

For years, the curvy singer has preached to her fans about the benefits of clean living — no sex before marriage, no boozing and no smoking. 

"I don't believe in drugs or even smoking. I believe in God," she told the Knoxville (Tenn.) News-Sentinel two years ago. 

The smoking, as well as reports that Britney occasionally boozes, has infuriated the Rev. David Kelly, pastor of the Louisiana church she used to attend. 

"Smoking and drinking isn't what Christ wanted. It is disobedient," Kelly told Heat magazine. 

"She is such a well-known person that we want her to continue being a good example of what it is to be a Baptist."
