Who doesn’t like to light the grill? Grilling season usually starts on Memorial Day and lasts through August, as the warmer months are ideal barbecue weather. While things may look a little different this summer due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, July 4th barbecues are quite typical, especially for celebrities.
Take Taylor Swift, for example. In July 2015, the singer ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ went to her home in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, with her then-boyfriend Calvin Harris and she wasted no time taking on her hostess’ duties by jumping behind the grill.
“She also cooks,” the music producer and DJ captioned an Instagram photo of the Grammy winner spinning slices of sweet potato on the grill with tongs. However, Harris deleted the sweet snapshot after he and Swift broke up the following June.
That year, the singer’s star-studded Independence Day celebration was attended Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, rich alum Serayah McNeill and the band Haim. “Happy 4th of me, @GiGiHadid @iammarthahunt @britmaack @SerayahLove and @HAIMtheband,” she captioned a photo of the group taking a dip in the pool.
Another Fourth of July barbecue fan is magical Mike star Joe Manganiello. He lit the grill in July 2017 and made several steaks for the occasion. His wife, Sofia Vergara, even took a picture of him in action. “Serious company on July 4th ❤️❤️” she captioned an Instagram photo of the actor who toiled. “Happy Independence Day !!!!”
Exactly two years earlier, Manganiello made dozens of burgers for a similar party. “Happy 4th!” he captioned an Instagram photo of himself while he was grilling.
While barbecuing is certainly a big part of the summer vacation, it can also be a fun bonding activity for some couples or friends. When it was time to wish his friend Jimmy Fallon happy birthday in September 2017, Justin Timberlake taken to Instagram to share a snapshot of the duo working on the grill together. “Remember that time when we were just two brothers hanging out, drinking beer, grilling burgers and hot dogs and talking about life and who had the better hairline and who was always the first to blow up in our sketches,” quipped he in the caption. “Only two brothers. Hanging around. Do bro things. ‘
