There is nothing about that headline that isn’t true, just as there’s nothing about it that isn’t awesome.

In fact, the only way it could be better is if it read ‘Vin Diesel Covers The Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint It Black’ For A Ciara Album Called ‘The Last B*tch Hunter.’ As for the song, it’s great. But you knew that, because if you have any sense you know Ciara is incredible.

She manages to rock the hell out of “Paint It Black,” a song that came out in 1966 that artists of all stripes love to cover even though it has a tendency to  make even accomplished singers sound like self-serious turds. While we only get to hear a snippet of the song in the trailer, it’s enough to know that the full version is going to be an absolute monster.

There’s a reason Ciara thinks that she deserves to be thought of in the same tier as Beyoncé, y’all.  And that reason is “because she freakin’ does.”

In short, Ciara is the best. Her new album Jackie is the best (listen to it if you haven’t already). This video is the best. But even she’s not enough to get us to see The Last Witch Hunter. That looks like a mess.
