Vin Diesel recorded himself singing Rihanna's Stay
This one's going out to The Rock!
Vin Diesel, star of The Fast and The Furious, Fast & Furious, Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6, has a heart and a set of vocal cords underneath those hundreds of pounds of rage and man-flesh, so this Valentine's Day, the actor recorded a special message for his Facebook fans.
This karaoke cover of Stay:
It's not the David Bowie Stay, or the Simply Red Stay, or the Madonna Stay or the Lisa Loeb Stay.
It's the song called Stay by Rihanna.
He did not record the video in the bathtub, though the lighting there may have been better.
In another life Diesel, born Mark Sinclair, was an aspiring rap artist (please see this 1986 recording with cellist/producer Arthur Russell), and he has a warm tone in the song's lower portions. (Poor guy should leave the rest to RiRi and Mikky Ekko.)
Still, next Feb. 14, will someone please respond to the Vinny D's karaoke party e-vite? Valentine's Day is a crappy night to spend alone. With your webcam. Hoping Rihanna RTs you.
