Will she or won't she? This weekend, it's probably the top question on fans' minds: Will Taylor Swift host her annual Fourth of July party? The singer hasn't been incredibly active on social media lately, and she's remained relatively out of the spotlight for months. Sure, there have been rumblings of new music on the horizon, but Swift hasn't confirmed anything. However, when it comes to epic, celebrity-packed Fourth of July parties, no one does them quite like Swift. This is exactly why fans are speculating about whether she'll host yet another Independence Day party this weekend. (Bustle reached out to the singer's rep, but did not receive an immediate response.)
From the red, white, and blue attire, to the BBQ meals, to the seemingly infinite supply of American flags and themed decorations, Swift's Fourth of July parties always make for next-level Instagrams. The annual event typically goes down at her Rhode Island beach house, and in years prior, the star-studded guest list included the likes of Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Karlie Kloss, Orange Is the New Black stars Uzo Aduba and Ruby Rose, and many more. Oh, and who can forget the iconic photos of Swift's former boyfriend Tom Hiddleston wearing an "I [heart] T.S." shirt last year?
On Friday, June 30, fans of Swift noticed what appears to be an inflatable red, white, and blue slide outside of her Rhode Island home, which has led many to believe she will indeed continue the tradition. However, it's not confirmed that this is definitely Swift's house, or even a new photo.
Last year, a similar slide set the scene for a handful of images that made their way to Swift's Instagram feed, along with those of her friends. So, this is why fans believe that something related to Independence Day will be going down at Swift's property.
It's been reported that Swift may use the celebration as an opportunity to introduce her rumored new boyfriend Joe Alwyn to friends and fans via social media. "With her favorite holiday around the corner," a source reportedly told HollywoodLife.com, "Taylor will once again get together with her squad and hopes to share fun selfies with her hunk with the world."
Whether or not pictures of Swift's rumored party end up on the 'gram, here's hoping that she and her guests have a fun and safe holiday weekend.
