Taylor Swift's grandest holiday tradition, her annual Taymerica Fourth of July party in Rhode Island, didn't happen in 2017 and 2018, and it didn't happen this year either. Swift instead spent her Fourth of July holiday pretty far from the East Coast. As LaineyGossip noted, photographers caught her and her friends boarding her plane in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The girls spent five days there, arriving on July 2.

Swift's last Fourth of July party was back in 2016 when she was dating Tom Hiddleston, he wore the I Heart TS tank, and their party was extravagantly documented on every guests' Instagram. Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively, and Gigi Hadid were among the stars to share a glimpse of their red, white, and blue-themed festivities. It was a different time, before Kim Kardashian posted those Snapchat takedown videos of Swift and before the Reputation era happened:

Swift's vacation comes after she spoke out about Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun acquiring the rights to her music catalog after purchasing her old label, Big Machine Label Group. In the open letter she posted on her Tumblr, Swift called it her "worst case scenario" because of "the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years."

Asource told E! last week that despite the public response to her post (some celebs took sides), Swift has no regrets about making her issues with him public.

"No matter what Scooter or any of his people say, Taylor believes he did this to hurt her," E!'s source said. "She wants the truth about him to come out. She was furious and she still is. She is so upset and has zero regrets about making this public."

Swift also believes in her cause so strongly that she is not bothered by those who support Braun over her. "Taylor doesn't care if she has enemies and if all of Scooter's friends support him," the source said. "She knows what his intentions are and why he did this. She has her friends who will stand by and support her, too. She feels very strongly about this, and standing up to Scooter."

Swift is set to headline Amazon Prime's concert on Wednesday.
