Mariah Carey’s recent album title, ‘E=MC2’, has been described as "misleading" by scientists.
Carey claimed the title, inspired by Albert Einstein’s famous mathematical equation, stood for “emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two”.
However, a study carried out by the charity Sense About Science has criticised Carey’s unproven formula.
Mathematician Dr David Leslie told the BBC the singer had “misread the algebra”, adding: “The 'two' in the equation means C squared, not MC multiplied by two.
“The correct reading of the equation is E=MCC, so perhaps Mariah's re-interpretation should have been 'emancipation equals Mariah Carey Carey'?"
The charity also criticised a similar scientific error made by the celebrity TV chef Delia Smith.
As previously reported on Gigwise, Carey spent the Christmas holidays with her husband Nick Cannon in Aspen.
