Vin Diesel Sings a Rihanna Song to His Real-Life Girlfriend Because Vin Diesel is Metal
Last Valentine’s Day, in lieu of a Valentine’s Day gift, Vin Diesel — with this help of his daughter — recorded himself singing a Rihanna song for his girlfriend, Paloma Jimenez. It … well, it actually sounds like you’d expect it to sound if Vin Diesel were sincerely and earnestly singing a Rihanna song, which is to say, it’s not bad. It’s not great, either. It’s the thought that counts, though, right?
Besides finding out that Vin Diesel has a decent singing voice, we’ve also learned that Vin Diesel is straight, he has a daughter, and woah! He’s 45? Has he been using the same moisturizer that Wentworth Miller is using?
If you’re curious, Diesel’s Riddick is also trending toward a $20 million opening weekend, which isn’t bad for a $38 million movie with cool monsters and very problematic, very uncomfortable misogynistic undercurrent.
