And Nicole Richie figures out "ya gotta bounce back!"

Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what stars, artists and brands have been up to this week on social media.

Spice It Down
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! White House press secretary Sean Spicer pre-emptively wore a green tie ahead of St. Patrick’s Day — a fashion faux pas in the digital age. Spicer’s tie was given the greenscreen meme treatment, and, well, you can see the results below.

Ya Gotta Bounce Back!
Nicole Richie and Big Sean bonded over Sean’s latest single, “Bounce Back,” at THR’s star-studded Power Stylists Dinner, co-hosted by Jimmy Choo. Let’s walk through what happened here.

First, Nicole went over the lyrics with rising stylist Jamie Mizrahi and Jimmy Choo's Sara Riff.

"Last night took an L, but tonight I bounce back."  Big Sean's "Bounce Back."

What's an L? It can mean a joint, but in this case, it means loss. A quick search on Urban Dictionary transpired.

Showtime. Please note, the lyrics do not include: "Wake up every morning and I smoke crack."


Don't worry guys, my new BFF @bigsean set me straight and now I'm all caught up... and truly exhausted.

Pete Souza’s Constant Shade
A photographer usually doesn't prefer consistent shade, but former President Barack Obama’s White House photographer, Pete Souza, is throwing it left and right at President Donald Trump with each of his Instagram posts. Souza has found a clever way of educating the public on how Obama did things while he was in office. President Trump met with German Prime Minister Angela Merkel today; Souza then posted a photo of Obama and Merkel together (the two leaders got on quite well). Here, a look at Merkel and Obama meeting for the first time in 2009.

Bring Your Husband to Work ...
... And he may get regrammed by fashion designer Christian Siriano. THR style editor Carol McColgin and her husband were spotted on Siriano's Instagram after McColgin posted a photo of the pair working on THR's Stylist Issue. Goals.
