Yes, Britney Spears was out on the town Monday night.

That’s nothing unusual. The weird part is that she was wearing clothes. Well, kinda. And looking uncharacteristically gloomy.

With all eyes on Paris Hilton being released from jail, it would seem that Monday was the perfect opportunity for Britney and her pals (cousin Alli Sims, pictured, was there too, of course) to hit the L.A. club scene.

But when Britney Spears arrived at Joseph’s at midnight, she was barely recognizable.

Dressed in all black and wearing a dark wig under a 1920s paperboy hat, Britney looked more high school goth than pop star.

But hey, at least everyone at the club didn’t get a peak at Britney Spears naked. Though they’ve probably seen it all over the celebrity news rags by now.

Sitting at a corner table near the dance floor, Britney Spears talked to her friends, but didn’t appear to be moved by the music.

Perhaps she was waiting for a Marilyn Manson, Pantera or Nine Inch Nails track.

Britney Spears later got up and browsed through the DJ’s selections, requested a few songs, and dance-walked her way back to her seat.

Despite the praise of Rosie O’Donnell earlier in the day, Britney was a downer, wallowing in a coke drink and not paying much attention to anything or anyone around her.

Yawn. Let’s just say that reporting on the escapades of the lovely Lauren Conrad on the nightclub scene would have probably been a lot more interesting.

After leaving Joseph’s at 1:28 a.m., the gang went to a Carl’s Jr. drive-through for late night snacks. Stunning news there.

There, paparazzi who followed were treated to a Britney Spears version of Justin Timberlake‘s recent table-turning photography, though no one was called an a$$hole here.

Nor did Britney Spears attack with an umbrella. Hey, baby steps, right?
