Mariah Carey Defies Physics
Sense About Science is a British group that tries to clear up popular misconceptions about the way the world works with releases such as "Can perfume make your unborn baby infertile?" Now the group is attacking a new and dangerous source of scientific misinformation: Mariah Carey. Her album E=MC2, which title the singer says stands for "emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two," misrepresents Einstein's classic theorem.

"Mariah Carey officially rubbish at maths," announces the Guardian.
