First things first: You still have a little barbecue sauce on your face.

Secondly, now that the 4th of July holiday weekend is over, here are five things you might have missed if you were too busy grilling and chilling:

5. Another Summer Wedding to Melt Your Heart

Well, this is meta: Elisha Cuthbert found her own happy ending when she wed longtime love, Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf, Saturday on Prince Edward Island. While the Happy Endings star may have been all dressed in white, she was chauffeured to her nuptials in a black Chevrolet Camaro convertible, no less. See her gown.

4. All Hail Andy Murray, the First British Wimbledon Champ in 77 Years

If the royal baby ever wants tennis lessons, Kate need not look further than Murray, whose Sunday victory on home turf against the top-ranked Novak Djokovic marked the first Wimbledon win for a British player since 1936. But when he's not ruling with his racquet, you'll probably find him ... at the sushi bar. What else is there to know about the the king of grass court? 5 fun facts.



3. Why You'll See Us at Spin Class Today

Dear Rihanna, we want to know all of your secrets, starting with your workout regimen and ending with your nightly skincare routine. The bikini-rocking singer shined (bright like a diamond!) during a Sunday outing to a Sopot, Poland, beach, where she took a break from showing off her vocal chords to flaunt her summer bod. How many crunches does it take to get these abs?

2. Look Who's Also Showing Off!

In a series of photos that could pass for one of her music video shoots, Taylor Swift gave fans a peek into her July 4th festivities, which involved plenty of wardrobe changes, friends and American flags – but mostly face paint – at her Rhode Island digs. We already knew she could pull of Red, but add some white and blue, and you've got a true American beauty. Party with Swift.

1. The Most Aww-Worthy Moment of the Weekend

In what can only be perceived as a move straight out of our high school daydreams, John Mayer dedicated a love song to Katy Perry on the opening night of his Born and Raised World Tour. Taking the stage in Milwaukee at the Marcus Amphitheatre, he thanked "Katy, who is my face to call home," before serenading the crowd with his 2012 love song – what else? – "A Face to Call Home." Get all the details!
