Taylor Swift’s 4th of July celebration had it all: matching American flag swimsuits, uncomfortable professions of Hiddleswift love, a possibly kidnapped Ryan Reynolds and a giant waterslide. What more could you ask for?
Selena Gomez was conspicuously absent from the most Instagrammed event of the century, choosing instead to turn up at her own party with a group of friends who might be little less famous, but seem way more fun.
In a grainy Snapchat video shared by one member of the girl group Bahari, Ruby Carr, Gomez is seen dancing and smiling as Carr puckers up for a kiss. The singer happily obliges, planting a peck on her friend, before getting back to getting down.
It’s no coincidence that Carr wound up at Gomez’s 4th of July celebration. Both Bahari and Gomez are a part of the Interscope Records family and the girl group also opened for the singer for a brief stint of the former Disney star’s Revival tour.
Luckily, Gomez, a typically infrequent Snapchatter, captured most of the night on her account, documenting her new squad all night long. At one point, the group played the anthem of the enemy “Firework” ― Katy Perry and Gomez’s BFF TSwift have well-documented bad blood ― as they lit fireworks and danced the night away.
Gomez kissed a girl, liked it and lit up like a firework?!
