Taylor Swift Takes in July 4 Fireworks With Patrick Schwarzenegger and the Kennedys
Taylor Swift had a starstruck July 4, and no, we're not talking about fireworks or the stars on the grand old flag. Country music's sweetheart celebrated her Independence Day by taking a (romantic?) walk on the beach with Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Patrick and going sailing with several members of the Kennedy family in Massachusetts.
As you can imagine, celebrity gossip outlets caught wind of Swift's Fourth of July stroll with 18-year-old Patrick Schwarzenegger and immediately turned it into fodder for the 'Taylor Swift love interest' rumor mill. But for now, nobody knows if the two young stars are just friends or something more. Also, it bears adding that the 'Safe and Sound' hitmaker didn't spend the entire day alone with Schwarzenegger. The two reportedly took a private stroll on the beach, but Swift spent more time hanging out with the iconic Kennedy family at Hyannis Port in Cape Cod.
The past few months, the chart-topping country star has been spotted hobnobbing with the legendary American family on more than one occasion. In fact, Swift has been so inspired by the political Kennedy clan that she even penned a song about them. Swift found herself on the radar of the late Robert F. Kennedy's daughter Rory Kennedy, who has young girls at home, and in January, the 22-year-old 'Ours' songstress was invited to attend the Sundance Film Festival to view the red carpet premiere of 'Ethel,' a documentary about Rory's mother, Ethel Kennedy.
Swift, who is a megastar in her own right, has become an admirer of Ethel Kennedy, and actually admitted to feeling nervous around the widow of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
"The only time in my life I have ever been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy," Swift said after her first encounter, according to Ace Showbiz. "I got to spend the afternoon with Ethel a couple of weeks ago."
Hopefully, having one-on-one time with the Kennedys in Cape Cod has helped Swift get used to spending time around her favorite political wife. The 'Mean' singer has been hanging out with the family since Tuesday, and yesterday (July 4), spent a relaxing sunny afternoon on a Kennedy sailboat.
Right now it looks like the only fireworks Swift experienced this week were in conjunction with July 4 festivities -- and perhaps a few butterflies in her stomach, courtesy of the famous family. Until we hear more about her chumming up with Schwarzenegger, we'll stick to what we know.
