No Fireworks for Taylor Swift This Year

No fireworks last night at Taylor Swift’s seaside mansion.

The Rhode Island estate was basically empty. Her hired hands installed the giant inflatable slide, but none of her famous friends showed.

Taylor didn’t invite the squad to celebrate the Fourth of July. Swifties felt cheated. The annual #Taymerica party had become a summer ritual.

Swifties hoped for a formal unveiling of her new boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn. However, Taylor has said she’s approaching this relationship differently. They’re on the down-low. Or, the best Taylor Swift can keep anything private. (People)

Models Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne attended Paris Fashion Week with Bella HadidKendall Jenner and Kristen StewartBlake Lively spent the holiday in Vancouver with Ryan Reynolds, who is filming Deadpool 2Lorde and The Weeknd are touring Europe.
