Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and others made sure to post how they are celebrating the July 4th weekend, which is a time for celebrating America’s independence as well as for visiting the beach, having barbeques, and enjoying time with friends.

Swift showed her appreciation for the holiday on her blog this weekend, writing: “Happy belated 4th of July. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. This time around, my touring family joined me at the beach and I wanted to show you some of the pictures because you’re the reason we all get to be on tour together. You’ve seen us all in our show costumes on the Red Tour. Here’s what we all look like in RED, white, and blue:)” The 23-year-old performer brought her background singers and dancers to her estate in Rhode Island to celebrate the holiday.

Hot mothers Carey and Beyonce made sure to flaunt their toned bodies on July 4th. Carey posted a photo of herself on Twitter in a patriotic red, white and blue bikini. It’s hard to believe the diva is 43 years old and has had twins.[[nid:1335245]]

Beyonce, 31, also shared intimate photos from her July 4 celebration, including a seductive pose in red, white and blue shorts.[[nid:1335247]]

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj hosted an all-white-attire boat party in New York to celebrate the launch of her new drink Moscato with more than 300 guests. 


Katy Perry and John Mayer, who had broken up months ago, showed they are definitely back together. Both dressed in stars and stripes, they posed together for a patriotic snapshot.
