Taylor Swift spends a famous 4th in Rhode Island

 Taylor Swift spent another July Fourth at her beachside property in Westerly, R.I. The singer chronicled her long weekend for fans on Instagram, capturing pics of her famous guests, who included Jaime King, Lena Dunham, Emma Stone and boyfriend Andrew Garfield, and “Gossip Girl” actress Jessica Szohr. At first Swift’s vacation spot was unclear, but then she captioned a photo “Ocean State,” confirming the sightings around town. Rhode Islanders seemed thrilled to have Swift and her crew in the area. Someone flew a banner over her property that said, “Tonight Sparks Fly Happy Fourth Taylor.” (“Sparks Fly” is the name of one of Swift’s songs.) Fans also took to Twitter to announce their excitement and sightings. Swift doesn’t stay often in Rhode Island, but she was there last Independence Day with her touring crew. Just two weeks ago, three Connecticut residents were charged with disorderly conduct for throwing beer bottles at her home and flipping the bird to Swift’s security guard.

Her caption for this photo was: “When the 4th of July gives you nonstop rain, make a giant slip n slide.”
