Britney donates dress for Haiti

Britney Spears has donated a dress to help out Haitian earthquake victims.
A court commissioner approved a request allowing the singer to donate the dress she wore to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards so it can be auctioned.
The court's permission was needed because the pop singer remains under a court-ordered conservatorship - her father Jamie, who will oversee the donation, controls his 28-year-old daughter's personal and financial affairs.
The court also granted her father authority to get rid of some of Britney's property that was used during last year's Circus tour. The items are described as being "valueless" and occupying several storage containers.
The 2008 MTV VMAs were the start of a public comeback by Britney, who retreated from the public eye after being placed in the conservatorship in February 2008. She won three awards at the show, including video of the year for Piece of Me.
No other changes to the conservatorship were announced during a brief open session after Britney left the courtroom.
It was Britney's first meeting with Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz since the singer concluded a world tour promoting the Circus album last year.
Before the hearing, she smiled as she walked in through the courtroom's backdoor and stood next to her father and an attorney.
Britney did not speak before Goetz closed the courtroom to the public and reporters, stating that medical and sensitive personal information would be discussed.
