Lil Nas X Makes Surprise Appearance During Diplo’s Set at EDC Las Vegas 2021

  Lil Nas X Makes Surprise Appearance During Diplo’s Set at EDC Las Vegas 2021 Lil Nas X helped close out the second day of EDC Las Vegas 2021 on Oct. 23 with a surprise appearance during Diplo’s late-night set. As Diplo’s hourlong set on the cosmicMEADOW stage came to a booming close, the DJ and producer brought out Lil Nas X to perform his hit tracks amid a fireworks and pyrotechnics display. Dressed in a Metallica cutoff midriff T-shirt and a knee-length kilt, the 22-year-old rapper hyped up the EDC crowd while singing along to his chart-toppers “Industry Baby,” “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Old Town Road.” For the latter song, Lil Nas fittingly threw on a black cowboy hat.

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Pat Robertson, who turned a tiny Virginia television station into a global religious broadcasting network, is stepping down after a half-century running the “700 Club” on daily TV, the Christian Broadcasting Network announced on Friday.

Robertson, 91, said in a statement that he hosted the network's flagship program for the last time on Friday, and that his son Gordon Robertson will take over the weekday show starting Monday.

“I will no longer be the host of the ‘700 Club,’" Robertson said on the show Friday, although he vowed to return from time to time, if he’s had a “revelation” he needs to share. “I thank God for everyone that’s been involved. And I want to thank all of you.”

Elton John and Lil Nas X Swap Legendary Looks in New Uber Eats Campaign

  Elton John and Lil Nas X Swap Legendary Looks in New Uber Eats Campaign Iconic music stars Elton John and Lil Nas X are the latest duo to join forces for Uber Eats' “Tonight I’ll Be Eating” campaign This time, John and Lil Nas X — two gay trailblazers, both known for their eccentric fashions — bring their unique flair to the ads, even swapping iconic looks for one. "You look amazing," John, 74, tells Lil Nas X, who is wearing a version of the feathered and sequin ensemble John famously wore to perform "Crocodile Rock" on The Muppet Show back in 1977.

Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network started airing on Oct. 1, 1961 after he bought a bankrupt UHF television station in Portsmouth, Virginia. The "700 Club” began production in 1966.

Now based in Virginia Beach, CBN says its outreach extends to more than 100 countries and territories in dozens of languages through TV and video evangelism, online ministry and prayer centers. The “700 Club” talk show can be seen in the vast majority of U.S. television markets.

“Pat Robertson had an enormous impact on both American religion and American politics,” said John C. Green, an emeritus political science professor at The University of Akron.

One of Robertson’s innovations with the “700 Club” was to use the secular talk-show format, which was a break from more traditional broadcasts of revival meetings or church services.

“Here’s a well educated person having sophisticated conversations with a wide variety of guests on a wide variety of topics,” Green said. “It was with a religious inflection to be sure. But it was an approach that took up everyday concerns.”

Robertson attracted a large audience and went on to have several U.S. presidents as guests, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, the network said.

Robertson was the son of a U.S. senator and received a law degree from Yale. He ran for president in 1988 and also founded the Christian Coalition, galvanizing American evangelicals into a conservative political force.

“He opened up a path that many people have followed,” Green said. “Surveys show that lots and lots of people view — in one format or another — religious broadcasting these days. But in politics, I think what he did was help cement the alliance between conservative Christians and the Republican Party.”

When Do You Celebrate ‘Lil Nas X Day’? Here’s a Calendar of Rappers’ Honorary Holidays

  When Do You Celebrate ‘Lil Nas X Day’? Here’s a Calendar of Rappers’ Honorary Holidays Lil Nas X is the latest in a long line of hip-hop artists who have been embraced and honored by their hometowns — and other cities as well — with the special occasion of having an entire day dedicated to them. The Montero artist flew home to Atlanta on Wednesday to celebrate the city’s official proclamation of “Lil Nas X Day,” in which they recognized his monumental success “in the world of music, entertainment and popular culture.” “This is amazing,” Lil Nas X told the crowd. “I would have not have imagined I would be here four years ago when I was in my sister’s room on the floor. What else can I say? This is incredible, man.

As “700 Club” host, Robertson sometimes found himself in hot water for his on-air pronouncements. In 2005, he called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town not to be surprised if disaster struck them because they voted out school board members who favored teaching “intelligent design.”

But Robertson also called for ending mandatory prison sentences for marijuana possession convictions. He later said on “The 700 Club” that marijuana should be legalized and treated like alcohol because the government’s war on drugs had failed.

After President Trump lost to Joe Biden in 2020, Robertson said Trump was living in an “alternate realty” and should “move on,” news outlets reported.

Robertson will still appear on a monthly, interactive episode of The 700 Club and will come on the program “occasionally as news warrants,” the network said.

Gordon Robertson, 63, is a Yale-educated former real estate lawyer who is less known than his father, if at all controversial. He is chief executive of CBN and has served as executive producer of the “700 Club” for 20 years, and even longer as a co-host. He's also been hosting a show called “700 Club Interactive.”

He told The Associated Press on Friday that viewers should expect little to change about the show, which airs live from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on weekdays.

The younger Robertson said he hopes to host politicians from both sides of the aisle, while focusing on news and other topics from a Christian perspective.

He said he always wanted the show to be “a beacon of light of what can happen when people get together and say, ‘Let’s do some good in the world today.’”

“Let’s feed the poor," he continued. "Let’s clothe the naked. Let’s give shelter to people in need. When disasters strike, let’s strike back with love and compassion.”
