Pop singer Mariah Carey's huge decision to call her album E=MC2 doesn’t add up, leading mathematicians to insist she "misread" the meaning behind Albert Einstein's formula. The star used Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence sum as the title of her 2008 LP. In interviews to promote the record, Carey told reporters she re-interpreted the equation to stand for "emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two". But Dr David Leslie, lecturer in Statistics Department of Mathematics at Britain’s Bristol University, is slamming the star’s choice of title insisting Carey didn’t properly research the meaning of the equation before using it. He tells the BBC, "(Carey has) misread the algebra. 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’?"
