Houston is home to a number of celebrities, both in the entertainment industry and in other fields. Some of the most well-known celebrities who live in Houston include Beyoncé, J.J. Watt, and Mattress Mack. 

Beyoncé is one of the most successful recording artists of all time, with a string of hits that have topped the charts around the world. She was born and raised in Houston, and her career began with the girl group Destiny’s Child. She has since gone on to release a number of solo albums and has won multiple Grammy Awards. 

J.J. Watt was a defensive end for the Houston Texans, and he is one of the most dominant players in the NFL. He was born in Wisconsin but moved to Houston at a young age, and he was with the Texans since they drafted him in 2011 until the spring of 2021. Nevertheless, after a 10-year career with the Texans, Houston still claims him as its own. He has won multiple Defensive Player of the Year Awards and is a three-time NFL All-Pro.
