Wednesday's Most Intriguing People: Syrian leader; 'I Need a Job!' organizer

Perez Hilton

The celebrity gossip blogger announced Tuesday that he will write a children’s book with Penguin called, “The Boy with Pink Hair,” the Los Angeles Times reports. Penguin says the book is about “a child born with a shock of fabulous hair that sets him apart from his peers. While some find this difference hard to accept or understand, 'The Boy with Pink Hair' uses the opportunity to find what makes him special and share it with the world.”

Bashar al-Assad

The embattled president of Syria acknowledged in a speech Wednesday that his citizens want reform and said that the nation is "now the target of a worldwide conspiracy." He said, "We are for reform, and we are for meeting the people’s demands. But we are not in favor of chaos and destruction.” Assad's comments come after anti-government protests in Syria and a day after his Cabinet resigned.

Matthew Segal

The Ohio native and founder of the Our Time youth organization is launching its F#%K, I Need a Job! campaign  Wednesday. The movement, which features a petition, hopes to help young adults fight unemployment. “Our Time is putting names and faces to a group of workers who are being overlooked – our strength is truly in our numbers,” Segal said in a news release. “America needs a wake-up call – we are leaving our next generation behind.  And young Americans need a reality check – no one is coming to bail us out.”

Shauna Miller

The 24-year-old from Los Angeles is the creator of Penny Chic, a blog featuring styled looks from clothes bought entirely from Walmart. The site, which is not affiliated with the retailer, was started when Miller could not find a job after graduating from college. On the blog, Miller, who once worked at a Paris fashion house, wrote, "What’s more intriguing to me is the challenge of looking chic at a time when this season’s must-have Little Black Dress is no longer an option. ... And that’s when I came up with the idea to put America’s cheapest discount department store on a fashion pedestal and ditch the skinny models for me and my friends."
