There aren’t many people in the world who get the pleasure to consistently annoy Rihanna and get away with it.

Jim Parsons is one of those people. The Big Bang Theory star was a guest on Monday’s The Tonight Show, where he explained to Jimmy Fallon how he’s been getting on Rihanna‘s nerves while the pair are promoting their new movie Home.

“Her songs keep coming on in my head,” Parsons, 41, told Fallon. “And I’ll keep, like, singing, ‘Yellow diamonds’ – just out of nowhere, I’ll be doing it. And first off, her reaction is always, she’ll look at me and go, ‘That gives me chills. And not in a good way.’ ”

But Parsons is sympathetic to what he’s putting Rihanna through, even if he’s also powerless to stop. “What if she was doing ‘Bazinga’ the whole time we were doing press? I might go, ‘Would you shut up?’ ”

Home hits theaters March 27. If you desperately need more RiRi/Parsons action before then, you can always head over to Parsons’s Instagram, where he’s been putting up multiple pictures of the pair of them palling around.
