Houston's All-Star Weekend just came to a close and sure enough, we saw plenty of our favorite musicians sitting as close to the court as possible. There they sat, waiting for the world's best basketball stars to say "what's up" or get a few paparazzi photos taken, or, you know, just enjoy a nice cold beer like Jay-Z and Beyonce at the Barclays Center in the photo above.
