Grammy swag report

Here's the AP wire on the swag bags at tonight's Grammys:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lionel Richie summed up the appeal of the swag suite at the Grammy Awards pretty succinctly as he strode through: "Free! Free, free, free!"

Richie was among the stars who were "gifted" before the awards show, at a tent outside the Staples Center, where the awards are held. John Legend, Rihanna, Smokey Robinson and James Blunt were among the celebrities who strode through and picked up a wide array of free stuff, including pricey skin-care products, video games, $400 pendants, $300 espresso makers, free passes to Disneyland and stereo systems for iPods.

Rihanna tried on a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes, while Richie picked out a $260 pair of Gucci sunglasses.

Presenters and performers at the Grammys are given $30,000 worth of gifts from Distinctive Assets, while those who pop into the gifting suites can pick up an additional $15,000 in swag.
