Listen, America. We’re right there with you, plodding along on this Monday after a long holiday weekend (a.k.a. the worst breed of Monday). Trust, we too are peeling our sunburns, trying to avoid scratching our mosquito bites, and mourning the onslaught of another week of cubicle sweaters. But before we officially come to grips with Independence Day having passed, we’re catching up on what everyone else (OK, namely Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift) did AND wore for their Fourth of July celebrations.

Nicki Minaj spent her holiday hosting her Myx Fusions 4th of July Private Affair in New York. Her boyfriend Safaree Samuels covered the red wearing the shade head-to-toe while Nicki repped for white in a pearl-embellished pilot cap and bodycon bandage dress (though, she matched her boo with red nails).

Selena Gomez’s Independence Day performance was pre-taped, so she was actually able to celebrate with a true vacation day. Thanks to a quick Twitpic, we can see that Selly spent the holiday surrounded by friends and (like Nicki) swaddled in white. The “Come & Get It” singer paired the strapless, embellished-bust dress with natural waves and BRONZE skin.

OK, so we don’t actually know what outfit Katy Perry wore for Fourth of July, but she DID post this picture of her holiday manicure: red and blue

Katy’s ensemble is a mystery, but according to the photos she uploaded to her blog, Taylor Swift wore enough red, white, and blue on Thursday for all of these ladies combined. Some highlights include red shorts with a thinly striped blue and white button-up, a cherry silhouette print swimsuit top worn with a blue A-line skirt AND with matching high-waisted swim bottoms, and a red, white, and blue nautical striped shirt with black tap shorts. As if this wasn’t enough wardrobe variation for one holiday, T.Swizzle includes photos of not one, not two, but three more outfits she wore for the holiday. Hear that, Tay? That’s the sound of us giving you a round of applause for your matchless dedication to patriotic style. *CLAPS*
