Only bad thing about a star is they burn up
Stars, like the sun, burn up eventually.
Just like the spark in the girl/relationship is gonna pass out someday..
Stars (Celebrities) burn out as well
Coincidentally (or perhaps not), all the stars he says R.I.P to have “burned” literally; MJ in the Pepsi hair incident, and the other 2 in their unfortunate death, (Left Eye in a car crash and Aaliyah in a plane crash). Left-Eye also set fire to her ex-boyfriend’s house back in ‘94. Also there is irony in that what makes stars shine in space is that they burn up.
Using the term “bad thing” is a nod to the song this is sampled from, “Bad Things” by Cults
