Bet you're sorry now that you didn't pick San Francisco for the Video Music Awards, MTV! Apparently all pre-VMA parties for Sunday's VMAs in Miami have been cancelled in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The storm hit Miami right as this year's VMA host, Sean Combs (we are now point-blank refusing to call him Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, or Diddy, because, well, that's ridiculous) cut the ceremonial ribbon at "Hotel MTV" on Wednesday, so yesterday and tonight's parties all got cancelled. Sorry, Ricky Martin's listening party and the Hotel MTV B-Ball Tournament f/ the Ying Yang Twins and Mike Jones!

See, MTV? Gavin was right; we would have been an excellent venue! We're having bee-yoo-tee-ful weather out here this weekend -- not too hot, not too cold, and the fog makes for beautiful sunsets. SF would have been a place to watch our local boys from Green Day win some Moonmen. Oh well, MTV -- we'll just enjoy our city without you this weekend. (Gosh, we hope Farnsworth Bentley's umbrella doesn't flip inside out over Mr. Combs in the high winds out there in Miami, that would be terrible.)
