How the stars celebrated the Fourth of July

Story highlights

  • July Fourth is a popular holiday for celebs also
  • Social media was filled with patriotic photos

(CNN)Fireworks, family and food: When it comes to holidays, stars really are just like us -- but with more money.

Thanks to the wonders of social media and the paparazzi, we all got to virtually share in some stars' celebration of America's birthday.
    True to Taylor Swift style, the singer partied with her squad, who donned red, white and blue outfits for the occasion and posed for a snap in front of some fireworks. It doesn't get much more American than that.

    Happy 4th from us ❤️
