Listen: Carol Burnett on Her ‘Unbelievable’ Emmy Nod, ‘Ridiculous’ Network Notes
Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” a podcast from Variety featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front of and behind the camera.
In this week’s episode, Variety’s executive editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, talks with comedy legend Carol Burnett, who scored her 23rd Emmy nomination for “The Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary Special.”
Even with six Emmy Awards under her belt, Burnett is still immensely grateful at the recognition by the TV Academy, as well as audiences. “To have this happen now, it’s kind of unbelievable,” Burnett says. “I was happily surprised.”
The program, which is in contention for variety special, celebrated the 50th anniversary of “The Carol Burnett Show,” the variety series which ran from 1967 to 1978, and won 25 Emmys over the course of its run.

MAX & Quinn XCII Talk Pop Hit 'Love Me Less' & Why It's the 'Sleeper Song' of the Summer
If you listen to top 40 radio, you've probably already vibed to MAX's sunny new single "Love Me Less," featuring fellow singer/songwriter Quinn XCII, over the summer, as the song just reached its No. 22 peak on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart this week. What you might not have realized while bumping to the bouncy beat is that there's a pretty serious story behind the "vulnerable bop," as MAX has dubbed it.
"My last song, 'Lights Down Low,' I wrote for my wife and I proposed to her with it, and this is sort of the evolution of that, where I had this ex and she was not so happy about our breakup and she threatened to get my British wife deported -- which I knew she didn't really mean, but it was also really intense," MAX tells Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast (listen to the full episode below). "It was the first time we really had a moment where I was like, 'I don't think we're going to recover from this,' because [my wife] was so upset about it. ... We got in the studio, and this 'Love Me Less' idea came about. The right people love you more and not less for your baggage."
Raymond Braun on the importance of LGBTQ people knowing their history
The LGBTQ activist on his incredible new documentary, State of Pride.
Earlier this year, LGBTQ activist and social media influencer Raymond Braun commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising with an educational and eye-opening documentary about the importance of Pride Month.
Teaming up with Oscar-winning director Rob Epstein (The Times of Harvey Milk) and Jeffrey Friedman (End Game), the one-hour long documentary follows Raymond as he travels to three diverse communities – Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama – and speaks to various members of the queer community about the month-long celebration.
We recently caught up with Raymond and discussed the lack of education surrounding our history, his personal queeroes and the importance of making sure Pride is a protest, as well as a celebration.
Lil Nas X Responds to Homophobic Reactions to His Pride Month Message
An unfortunate facet of 2019 existence is that, despite progress, there are indeed still people who take seemingly every possible opportunity to damper that forward motion with mockery.
Such was the case with Lil Nas X, whose thoughtful Pride Month message about his 7 EP cut "C7osure" was largely met with a wave of support from fans and other artists, though Boosie Badazz decided to use X's moment to make a homophobic joke related to his breakout hit "Old Town Road."

You don’t have to march at Pride to show your pride
I remember being squashed between a mass of people on one side and the glass window of a sushi restaurant on the other.
I remember grabbing a handful of rainbow flags and raising them above my head.
Then, I remember hearing the names of the fallen recited and repeated by a mournful crowd. I remember the London vigil for the Pulse shooting as if it was yesterday.
The events of that weekend shook me to the core and pushed me to make a commitment I’d been putting off for a while. I pledged to become a queer activist.

From gay Nazis to “we’re here, we’re queer”: A century of arguing about gay pride
This month, hundreds of thousands of people around the world will join gay pride marches in cities big and small. In many cities, pride marches are controversial. In some—like Moscow—they are even banned. But for many people in North America, parts of Europe, Latin America, and elsewhere, attending the local pride march has become an unremarkable ritual of summer.
There are still good reasons to march. Few countries around the world have robust protections for gay and transgender rights. And pride marches, the LGBTQ political rallies that take the form of exuberant, outrageous parades, often meet hostile counterdemonstrators.

Ex-chauffeur claims racism and sexual harassment by mom, daughter: suit
A wealthy mother and daughter living in “Grey Gardens”-like squalor subjected their personal assistant to racist slurs and sexual harassment, according to a new Westchester County lawsuit.
Shamel Thompson says he was paid $1,750 a week to chauffeur around the 28-year-old daughter, Becky Stein, and do simple housework at her and her mother’s $4 million White Plains home, which was “permeated with junk,” according to court papers.
But it turned into the job from hell, with Becky spewing the N-word at him and demanding that he wipe feces from her genitals, the suit says.

Ecuador's highest court legalizes same-sex marriage
Ecuador's highest court has ruled to recognize same-sex marriage, marking a watershed moment for LGBTQ rights in the Catholic-majority country.
Judges on Quito's constitutional court ruled five-to-four on Wednesday to overhaul the country's laws, arguing that its current marriage legislation was discriminatory and unconstitutional, and that same-sex couples should be allowed equal rights.
The four dissenting judges said that changes to the Ecuadorean constitution should be decided and approved by the government and not the court.
Ecuador's National Assembly will still be required to officially change the laws that define the institution of marriage. Constitutional lawyer Salim Zaidán told CNN, however, that Wednesday's verdict was binding and that same-sex couples would be able to marry as soon as the constitutional court notifies local government offices of their decision. The court has 10 days to do so.
