Selena Gomez Had a Fourth of July Party Without Taylor Swift (But Plenty of Katy Perry)

While pal Taylor Swift was busy canoodling with new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston at her Fourth of July party, Selena Gomez was throwing her own fête to ring in Independence Day.

The “Hands to Myself” singer held her own backyard celebrations, sans Swift, for her closest friends. As captured on Instagram and Snapchat, the backyard bash was a poolside barbecue filled with boys, bikinis, and a sing-along to Katy Perry’s “Firework”. (We wonder how her BFF will feel about that one.)

Gomez also shared a video of herself — clad in red, white and blue, natch — mingling with guests before jumping into an infinity pool overlooking the sunset.

hostess vibes. Happy 4th everyone!

Gomez, who is currently on the road for her Revival Tour, was not present at Swift’s annual Fourth of July get-together held at her Rhode Island estate. As previously reported, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss were all in attendance at this year’s party.

It certainly looks like Gomez didn’t mind missing out one bit.
