WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI/AP) — Taylor Swift celebrated the July Fourth weekend by hosting a group of famous friends at her seaside mansion in Westerly.

The 26-year-old singer and an entourage including Swift’s boyfriend, actor Tom Hiddleston, hit the beach Sunday, as captured in photos by paparazzi employed by Splash News Online, and published by the New York Daily News and entertainment websites such as TMZ.

Actor Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”) and his actress wife Blake Lively (“The Shallows”) joined in water frolics with the group, as well as fashion models Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss.

“Rhode Island … the new Ibiza?” posited a TMZ writer.

Entertainment website Just Jared identified Swift as wearing an “America” bikini from Forever 21. Several of the attendees had red-white-and-blue themed swimwear. Hiddleston wore a white tank top with “I (heart) T.S.” over black swim shorts.

Swift has hosted a number of Independence Day parties at the mansion over the years; last year, the festivities included singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and several friends who are models, and in 2014, her guest list included actors Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield and Lena Dunham.
