Folks, we’ve reached that time of year again. Y’know – the 4th of July, when America‘s bonafide pop princess Taylor Swift injects the internet-connected world with a serious case of FOMO with her annual Independence Day party.

This year was no exception. Taylor’s party took place at her private beach near her Rhode Island home, artfully bedecked with her SS16 squad: Gigi Hadid, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Ruby RoseUzo Aduba, and of course, newly minted bae Tom Hiddleston, who was… um… he was wearing an ‘I Not Low Key: Tom Hiddleston Dons An ‘I <3 T.S.' Top At T-Swift's Rager T.S.’ t-shirt, and we don’t know what to do about that. Vomit, maybe.

And yes that IS a heart + a ‘T’ on his arm, well done for noticing.

The pics of T-Swift’s crew frolicking in the water number in the literal hundreds. They blew up all over the internet / on your Instagram as fans + fiends reacted with a) joy for the happy couple, b) embarrassment for Hiddleston, c) extreme jealously, or d) all of the above. 

Fans even went so far as to analyse the pics (and other evidence) as proof that Hiddleswift were secretly filming a new video clip. (Seriously – this theory is wild.)

Have a gander at a few of the pics below:
