Taylor Swift Has an Early Fourth of July Party – And It's as Amazing as You Think It Would Be

Taylor Swift knows how to celebrate the Fourth of July.

“Friendly relations between Scotland and America,” the “Bad Blood” singer posted on Instagram Friday along with a photo of herself getting a piggyback ride from her Scottish boyfriend Calvin Harris (and his abs).

But it wasn’t just a couple’s celebration.

“Happy 4th,” Swift captioned a shot earlier in the day in which she’s jumping in the air with her gal pals Gigi Hadid, the members of Haim, her longtime BFF Britney Maack, Victoria’s Secret model Martha Hunt and Empire star Serayah.

And the inflatable fowl floatie on which Swift and Harris confirmed their relationship status last month made another appearance in the 1989 artist’s Instagram feed. “Swan squad,” Swift captioned a third shot Friday afternoon, in which she’s seen smooching her beau aboard their favorite pool accessory, while their pals float around them.

Later in the night, things got even more patriotic with some flag-themed pajamas, per Gigi Hadid’s Instagram account.

And the next day, Ed Sheeran showed up – making a statement of his own.

This of course isn’t Swift’s first #SquadGoals-inducing Independence weekend party. Last year, she spent July 4th weekend swimming, playing with sparklers and serving red, white and blue treats with celeb friends including Lena Dunham, Emma Stone and Jaime King.
