Oops! She did it again.
The plot of pop tart Britney Spears' new movie has her young fans and their parents aghast - but hormone-charged teen boys can hardly wait for the film's release.
"Crossroads" - due out in February and starring Spears in her acting debut - features sex, rape, underage drinking and teen pregnancy.
It's a far cry from the Miss Priss image Spears has tried to cultivate.
As The Post's Page Six reported yesterday, the flick features the sultry songbird dancing in her underwear, getting drunk and losing her virginity to an ex-con.
"I didn't know she had a movie coming out, but now that I know what it's about, I wouldn't let my daughter see it," said Bertha Quevedo of Astoria, Queens. "It would be a bad influence on her."
Her daughter Maria, 11, agreed with her mom and thinks the singer's new sexpot image is icky. "
I liked her better when she was more innocent and acted like a girl," Maria said.
The Rivera sisters of East Harlem are also doubtful about Spears.
"I like her songs, but I don't like the way she acts," said Natalie Rivera, 13. "She used to be all innocent, but now it's all about money and showing off her body."
Her sister, Bianca, 9, chimed in, "And I don't like the way she dresses or the way she moves her body."
Their mom, Yadira, 39, said Brit's flick would be rated XXX in the Rivera household.
"No way would I let them see that movie," Yadira said. "She has an influence on kids, and letting them see it would be like playing with fire."
But teen boys are all for Spears' sizzling silver-screen debut.
"She appeals to a male audience because she's hot," said Rich Mendelson, 17, of Edison, N.J. "What do you think is going through a teenage boy's mind when she sings I'm a Slave for You'? "
She allows guys to have sick little fantasies - and that's exactly why I'm going."
Spears' representatives did not return calls for comment yesterday.

Nothing worse than fake chee-chee's except tatoos and piercings.
I'm no teenager and I'm interested.
Who am I to argue with logic like that?
And all along I thought they were ta-ta's.
Nevertheless, this dirty young man will admit to watching Britney's videos, albeit with the sound turned off.
(BTW: I prefer Shakira)
This to me seems more like desparation than advertising. I think the people around her are afraid she is going to lose the teen girl audience and are trying to build her with the adolescent male audience.
Since she cannot sing, and her primary audience (young girls) numbers are declining, she is trying to "create" a new audience. Personally, I don't think it can work. She is a falling star, eventually to be playing permanently on the Las Vegas strip.
No problem here with tattoos. But then, I have a couple myself.

Yeah, turning to sex sex sex sure killed Madonna's career ... NOT!
