Taylor Swift's July 4th Memories

Taylor Swift's memories of July 4th

Country cutie Taylor Swift says she loves "sparkly things," but Independence Day sparklers got her into trouble growing up.

"I was always that little kid who would run around picking up used sparklers off the ground and I would inevitably pick up the SCALDING HOT BURNING end that was still smoldering," she blogs on her MySpace page. "Then cue the screaming bloody murder in front of everyone and running into the house to ice your hand." Ouch!

"Gotta love humiliating childhood memories," the 19-year-old says. "Wish me luck this year. I think I'm gonna wear gloves."
