How About That of the Day: Personal emails obtained by Syrian opposition activists from two secret accounts over a period of nine months are said to have been penned by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and his wife, Asma.
Among the many things they reveal — a duplicitous attitude towards promised reforms, detailed advice from Iran on handling the uprisings, and extravagant jewellery and furniture purchases — is perhaps the most enlightening piece of intel about Assad’s personality: He’s a Chris Brown fan.
According to The Guardian, which has pored over the thousands of emails, the Syrian tyrant used a secret iTunes account to purchase his very own copy of Chris Brown’s hit single “Look at Me Now.”
Other songs that tickled Assad’s fancy: “Don’t Talk Just Kiss” by Right Said Fred, “Bizarre Love Triangle” by New Order, and “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton, which Assad forwarded to his wife.
Perhaps the most telling song in Assad’s iTunes arsenal, however, is LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It,” which he bought back in January.
He is also on record as having purchased Part 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which clearly speaks to his inner Voldemort.
