Taylor Swift Spent July 4th With Boyfriend              

For the second year in a row, Taylor Swift skipped throwing one of her legendary July 4th parties, and instead opted for some alone time with boyfriend Joe Alwyn. Turns out Taylor and Joe decided to spend their Independence Day at a luxury resort in Turks and Caicos.

The singer was spotted wearing a red, white and blue bikini, as she and her man enjoyed time swimming and snorkeling. It is one of the few times the couple has been spotted out together since they started dating last May. 

Maroon 5’s Tour May Sound Different From Their Albums              

Maroon 5 is currently on their “Red Pill Blues” tour and guitarist James Valentine says many fans are often surprised after they see the show, because it’s way more rockin’ than they expect. 

“Some of the most common feedback that we've gotten is, 'Oh, I didn't understand how much you guys actually rock. It's way louder than I thought it would be!'" Valentine tells “Billboard.” "I get it; I think, definitely, the last few records have been more electronic in their production but at the end of the day we're a rock band.”

He adds that when they prepare for the tour they “figure out how to take some of the electronic elements and flesh 'em out with real instruments and interface some of the studio sounds with the raw elements of a rock band, which can be a challenge sometimes.”

Finally, Valentine notes, “I think that's what makes it unique and what people really enjoy about the live experience. We always tread the studio differently than a live gig; We craft those records for the radio, but live we want to give it a different experience."

Maroon 5's "Red Pill Blues Tour" hits Hershey Park, Pennsylvania on July 14th.

Imagine Dragons Dan Reynolds Pain Free And Buff After Lifestyle Change              

Imagine Dragons’ frontman Dan Reynolds has made some changes to his lifestyle, which has resulted in him getting healthier, as well as more buff.

The singer recently showed off his new physique on Instagram, explaining to fans, "I've spent a decade fighting an auto immune disease that inflamed my joints (AS). I now live pain free, am in full remission & am the healthiest I've ever been. I owe it to Brad Feinberg.” He adds, "Correct diet, vitamins & exercise. I'll share it all w u soon. It's been life changing for me."

Earlier this week Dan also shared, “These before and after pictures say it all. Sorry for the corny exercise post but truly changed my life and healed years of pain. Unbelievably grateful for health,” adding, “when you live in pain for a decade and someone fixes your body it's nothing short of a miracle.”

Dan’s good friend Pink responded to his posts, writing, “Congrats @DanReynolds happy for you friend. Glad you're feeling good,” to which he replied, “Thank you :) miss you - give your family all my love xox."
