Da Music Critic

Written in the Stars by Tinie Tempah featuring Eric Turner is a very catchy song, but really, what excuse can there be for this kind of rhetorical (and astronomical) imprecision:

Oh written in the stars
A million miles away
A message to the main...

OK, there is one star several tens of millions of miles away, but the rest we see are at least tens or hundreds of trillions of miles away. And some doubt that hip hop is corrupting our youth.

Just sayin'.
