Michael Jackson parties with Britney; disappoints crowd

Michael Jackson briefly came out of the woodwork this weekend to celebrate friend Christian Audigier’s 50th birthday in Los Angeles. The party was attended by some major showbiz heavyweights, including Britney Spears. That’s right, Britney and Michael were in the same room, and the universe did NOT implode. That’s a lot of potential crazy within 100 yards, easily enough to knock the earth off its axis.

Despite the potential hazards to humanity, the party went off without a hitch, with celebrities like Fergie, Pam Anderson, and Snoop Dogg also in attendance. However everyone was disappointed in the King of Pop, who failed to perform at the event – choosing to mutter a few words into a microphone and then exit hastily.

The crowd went wild as Michael Jackson strode purposefully on stage and picked up a microphone. Was this the moment he was going to break into song and end his years of silence? Er, no. The fallen star just muttered a few words… then slunk back into his self-imposed obscurity.

The huge anti-climax came at an exclusive showbiz party in Los Angeles to mark fashion designer Christian Audigier’s 50th birthday. A-list guests – including Britney Spears and Pamela Anderson – went into a frenzy as Audigier introduced the “King of Pop”. But all they got as Jacko, 49, stepped onto the platform was a whispered, “Hello”. He added politely: “Christian is the King of Fashion” before turning on his heels and trouping off.

An insider said: “Everyone went mad when he grabbed the microphone. The mood was electric. But sadly there was no impromptu gig. It was a shame because he looked in pretty good shape. He was obviously just putting in an appearance for his old pal Christian.”

The Daily Mail notes that Britney was at the party, escorted by her father Jaime Spears and agent Jason Trawick. Fergie performed and Pamela Anderson gave a speech… which I’m guessing was super inspiring. But she did manage to flash the crowd – and nothing inspires like Pam Anderson’s ladybits. I didn’t realize that Britney’s dad was monitoring her so closely that he was actually her date to events. Hopefully he doesn’t go all Joe Simpson on her.

Michael Jackson disappointing isn’t really anything exciting, in and of itself. He’s not exactly the sort to surprise everyone and whip out a performance. Though apparently he did whip off his face mask for a while – and really, that’s about all we can hope for from the guy.

    I just never know what to think of this man? Is he an innocent victim or did he take advantage of innocent victims? Sad to see what has happened to a once great and innovative talent. 🙁

  2. Trillion says:

    Since when is Pamela Anderson “A-List”? Also, I can’t help noticing that Brit’s manager’s last name is only a few letters shy of “train wreck”.

  3. Hollz says:

    he’s prolly saving his come back for his big Five-O, this August 29th

  4. Other Karen says:

    Britney and Michael Jackson did do a duet together, at some sort of Michael Jackson tribute concert. That was back when Britney was on top of the world though, and hadn’t gone Loony Tunes yet.

  5. Shay says:

    I’m a closeted MJ fan but I can admit that he’s bat-shit crazy. He keeps backing out of things and he’s getting a bit to old to perform like the public is used to. It’s now or never.

    MJ is turning 50 this year? Between that and Prince’s hip replacement, I’m starting to feel ancient.

  7. A little too much lipstick, other than that I think he looks great. The press is always so rude with MJ… 😥
