Alexander Wang and more
Posner, who’s famous for hits including "Cooler Than Me" and "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" featuring Lil’ Wayne, heated up the stage with his infectious hit songs before celebrating the launch of his tour at NYC’s hottest new club, Riff Raff’s.

Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson, escorted by a doting Aunt La Toya, stocked up on some of their favorite games Cuponk, Rubik’s and Bop It! when they swung through one of the Kid’s Choice Awards gifting suites. Prince, who told Hasbro he is already a big fan of the trick shot game, Cuponk, can now try out the newest version, Le Flush Royale. Blanket wasted no time tearing into his new Rubik’s Cube, twisting and turning his way through the rest of the suite. She picked up a Rubik’s Cube and joked, "I will never be able to solve one of these." Maybe she’ll have some luck on the plane en route to New York? Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino visited the Hasbro table accompanied by attentive husband Jim. The pair was interested in picking up gifts for each of their three kids. Alexis was thrilled to take home Bop It and Cuponk for their son James. On the other end of the spectrum, reality TV starlets Aubrey O’Day (and her dogs) and Stephanie Pratt breezed through the lounge escorted by their reps and were selective about which products to take home. We were told they only had 20 minutes. Rico Rodriguez of Modern Family was determined to solve the Rubik’s, "I am going to stay here all day and figure it out!" he shouted. Before Rico had the chance to solve the Cube, his mom jumped in and said "We don’t have all day, you’ll have to figure this out at home." We guess Rico keeps a busy schedule! Bailee Madison, from the hit movie Just Go With It, is a clever kid! After picking up a Rubik’s Cube, she told Hasbro that the way to solve the Cube is to Google cheat sheets, "They work!" she exclaimed. When she was told that Justin Bieber can solve the Cube in under two minutes, she responded, "Justin can do everything!" We agree with her!
Anna Maria Perez de Tagle of Hannah Montana fame said that she plays games with her famous friends, the Jonas Brothers, all the time. "They LOVE games" she proclaimed.

Anna Maria took home Bop It, maybe the next time she and the Jonas Brothers have game night they’ll have a Bop off!
