Paris Hilton turned 30 yesterday. And to celebrate her third decade on planet Earth, she threw herself the party to end all parties on Wednesday night. The fête had a Moulin Rouge theme, naturally. And because every species loves late 1800s French cabaret, there was also a petting zoo complete with a lynx, porcupine, squirrel monkey and a sloth. (Yes, a sloth.) Not only was there an aerial show, but also delicious absinthe beverages. And as a gift, boyfriend Cy Waits bought her a yellow Japanese Lexus LFA convertible—a $375,000 car. All this makes my 30th birthday party last year seem ... kind of tame. [People, TMZ]
