Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen has set the phrase "you throw like a girl" back about a decade.

The Canadian singer threw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays vs. Houston Astros game on Sunday in St. Petersburg, Florida, and judging by her throw she really should stick to music.

Rays pitcher Matt Moore was behind the plate to catch the ball and had to jump up and run about 1/3 of the way up the first baseline to stop the rol...

Outfits ran from risque to outrageous, with some blatantly disregarding the memo that Grammy execs sent out last week asking stars to tone things down.
