Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Lil Wayne certainly is enjoying every moment of his freedom. After spending eight months behind bars at Rikers Island, Weezy has been living it up the only way he knows how, flying all across the country, appearing on stage, hitting the studio, partying with strippers and, on Wednesday night (November 17), hitting the American Airlines Arena in Miami to watch the Miami Heat dismantle the Phoenix Suns. With label president Mack Maine at his side, Weezy watched the Heat — lead by superstar trio LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh — dismantle the Suns by a score of 123-96. It was an especially big night for Bosh, who dropped in a season-high 35 points and seemed to be open for the duration of the contest. A handful of other stars — including Venus Williams — were also in the crowd in Miami, which is increasingly rivaling the Los Angeles Lakers for sheer volume of celebrity fans.
Weezy wasn't the only star under the spotlight, as Big Boi took his incredible live show to Sydney, Australia and the cast of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1" landed in Japan for the premiere of their new movie there.
