Taylor Swift and her pals from the Red tour -- sans Ed Sheeran, who, as a Brit, may have been a little miffed at the holiday -- celebrated Independence Day in a big way. She assembled her friends, crew and dancers for a barbecue, scavenger hunt and silliness at her Rhode Island mansion to ring in the Fourth.
She's sure cementing her status as America's sweetheart!
