Music events cancelled.
Tropical storm Katrina's approach of south Florida is already affecting the music events taking place in the state, including some of MTV's VMA activities and Bad Boy's new label launch party.
The storm, which may become a hurricane before Friday, has caused MTV to suspend activities at Hotel MTV for Thursday, Aug. 25. Based out of Miami Beach, Hotel MTV is Miami's official celebrity and party headquarters for the MTV Video Music Awards. Events are scheduled to take place through the week leading into the awards on Aug. 28. For now, the MTV Video Music Awards are scheduled to take place as planned.
The official kick off party for Bad Boy Latino, the label launched by Sean "Diddy" Combs and producer Emilio Estefan, planned for tonight has been cancelled.
Additionally, a concert by singer/songwriter Donato Poveda has also been rescheduled. Slated for Aug. 26, it will now take place in September.
