How To Party Responsibly

Designer Christian Audigier celebrated his 50th birthday in fine, gaudy style in Hollywood last night with a few of his closest (gaudiest) friends at L.A.'s Petersen Automotive Museum. Audigier's newest friend, Britney Spears, was in the hiz last night for the celebration (and Papa Jamie Spears came along to accompany her/keep an eye on her) as well as was the gaudiest one of all -- Michael Jackson -- who made a surprise appearance. Sounds like it was a party fit for a queen:

It was a girls' night out – plus dad – for Britney Spears Friday. Spears, in a black dress and sun-kissed blonde hair, told PEOPLE she's doing "good" at designer pal Christian Audigier's 50th birthday party at L.A.'s Petersen Automotive Museum. Spears, 26, hung with two girlfriends in a roped-off VIP area at Audigier's blowout gala. Fergie, Snoop Dogg, Pamela Anderson and – surprise! – Michael Jackson also made appearances. Jamie Spears joined his daughter, sitting on a couch about five feet away with his head resting on his hands. Spears stayed about an hour and a half, smoking cigarettes on an outside patio, nodding her head to a live performance from Macy Gray, and abstaining from alcohol. When she left for the evening, her father joined her. "I am friends with Britney," Audigier told PEOPLE before the party. "She was at my office, I believe, three weeks ago. She got some presents for Jamie-Lynn and herself too. She got a ton of T-shirts, a ton of caps. She loved it." Spears left the party before Jackson, clad in a shiny blue shirt, came onstage to wish Audigier happy birthday.

It was very nice of Britney to make an appearance for Audigier's 50th birthday but it seems clear that she (and her father/conservator Jamie Spears) is taking great pains to ensure that she stays out of trubs and away from temptation. Britney has been doing an amazing job of staying away from questionable places and people so that she doesn't court any more trouble. Clearly she knows what the important things are in her life ...

With folks like her father and former manager Larry Rudolph in her life, she seems poised to finally start living a nice, normal and safe life once again. And to that I say, Woot!
