When the music industry's finest voices take over the L.A. Lakers's turf for the Grammy Awards, it's a whole different game. The 20,000-capacity arena is big enough for Lady Gaga and her always-thorough theatrics – not to mention every pop princess and rock star in-between.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Dad Cheer on Lakers in Los Angeles

Tuesday, January 08, 2013 06:00 AM EST

Welcome to celebrity row!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his father sat courtside as the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Denver Nuggets at the Staples Center on Sunday.

Although the Nuggets beat Gordon-Levitt's home team 112-105, the Looper star remained optimistic, sharing photos on Twitter and Tumblr with the hashtag #Lakeshow.



But while Gordon-Levitt and his father may have cheered on the Lakers to the best of their ability, the game marked the team's third consecutive loss.

    Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Meet Their Favorite Disney Princesses | Joel Madden, Nicole Richie

    Though Disney on Ice Presents: Dare to Dream at L.A.'s Staples Center was meant to entertain kids, a few grown-up celebs got in touch with their inner children backstage at the show.

    Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, there with their children Harlow and Sparrow, snapped a fun photo with Disney's Princess Tiana. (Don't worry, Harlow and Sparrow got their turn with the princess, too!)

    Richie was quite the star backstage, too: According to a source, several ice skaters asked to take a photo with her, and she kindly obliged.

    Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart were also there with their daughter Billie – who dressed up as Cinderella and held a Cinderella doll – and baby Georgia, as well. Before leaving, both families donated diapers to Baby Buggy, a charity that benefits needy Los Angeles mothers, fathers and children. – Melody Chiu

      Nice view!

      Drew Barrymore left daughter Olive at home for some quality (courtside) time with her hubby, Will Kopelman, Friday in Los Angeles.

      The new parents watched as the Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers, 105-95, during the game at the Staples Center.

      But the hometeam's loss didn't seem to dampen Barrymore's good cheer, as the actress smiled broadly throughout the game.

          Hanging out with new pal Joe Jonas might have given Connor Cruise some useful tips, as Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's son is starting to prove he's quite the ladies man.

          After taking an unidentified brunette on a bowling date earlier in the week, Cruise, 17, a budding deejay, headed to Hyde Lounge at the Staples Center last week to catch the Enrique Iglesias and Jennifer Lopez show.

          Cruise tried to remain incognito, sporting black pants, boots, a Louis Vuitton belt and red hoodie sweatshirt – with the hood pulled over his head much of the time. It didn't take long for him to cozy up to yet another brunette.
