Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta Pose With Free Stuff!

One of the perks of celebrity is that you get all kinds of FREE STUFF. Kinda ironic, considering most famous people are in a position to buy sh*t for themselves.

Most big media events like the awards, for example, host “gift lounges”   in the afternoon, allowing the celebs to load up on swag before the main event.

It’s a big win for the companies who manufacture the freebies–the idea is, of course, that us common peeps will want to own the same stuff as our fav celebrities.

I mean, don’t you want to own whatever the hell that thingamabob is that Allison Iraheta is holding in the above photo?   Gee, I sure do!

So, I present to you, Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta posing with some sweet sweet swag before the big Z100 Jingle Ball tonight at Madison Square Garden.

No sighting of Adam Lambert yet, but MTV’s Jim Cantiello just tweeted that Adam isn’t doing press before the show. Maybe he’s just saying no to media saturation, and I say that’s a good thing.

Update:   Added more photos. Syesha in the house!

Photos after the JUMP…
