The hardest working man in daytime television was up past his bedtime last night to accept his nomination into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame. Peep Michael Strahan's induction speech inside…

Talk about bitter sweet. "Live with Kelly & Michael" host and "GMA"'s newest addition Michael Strahan accepted his nomination into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last night. And as exciting as that news is, it comes just one day before calling off he and his ex-fiancee “Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy called off their five-year engagement.

The former couple noted distance and grueling work schedules as the reasons behind their split. Michael is one of the hardest working men in television right now. He’s doing "Live" Kelly Ripa on ABC, he just started his "GMA" gig and he's also a Fox sports analyst during the NFL football season.

But on a happier note, he accepted his nomination into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and received his distinctive gold dinner jacket. The former defensive end (who spent his entire 15-year career playing for the Giants) was the last one to give his speech at the NFL Class of 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony at Fawcett Stadium in Ohio, and he thanked all those who helped him along the way.

During his speech, the single-season sack record holder thanked all of the Hall of Famers that surrounded him, the New York Giants, coaches, one of the greatest pass rushers in the NFL Lawrence Taylor and reflected on his Super Bowl XLII win in 2008.

Michael noted this weekend as being "the best weekend of my life."

Peep his full acceptance speech below:

And here’s Michael getting his NFL gold jacket presented by his close friend Fox Sports writer Jay Glazer:

Congrats to him!

Remy Ma SPITS On DJ Khaled’s “They Don’t Love You No More” Remix…Is She Coming For Nicki Minaj?

We showed you Remy Ma in the studio with DJ Khaled yesterday, and now we have what they were cooking up. Hear Remy’s post-prison remix inside….

The Ruler, so they call her, is back! And she’s ready to take the throne.

Remy Ma didn’t waste anytime to get back into the studio, teaming up with DJ Khaled to hop on “They Don’t Love You No More” remix. And it seems Rem is coming for the female MCs in the game…particularly Nicki Minaj.

The Bronx raptress spits:

“When y’all was on the TV, I was with the PVs/I listened to your CD, damn you really wanna be me/Don’t care if your name buzzin’, you know who the queen be.”

“These rap chicks try to stay away from me/Maybe cause I caught that case they afraid of me/Rem got that phlegm spit it crazily/And it’s a fact I’m everything that they portray to be.”
 

She goes in on the 2nd verse:

"Some say she nice but Reminisce nicer/I can feel the tension, please don't hype her/Tell her stay in her lane before I side swipe her/Droppin' that bird shit I'd hate to windshield wipe her."

 

Ouch!

Seems Nicki knew Remy would be coming for her. She dropped a subtle diss on the newly released “Flawless” remix with Beyonce, rapping:

"Yo, like MJ doctor, they killing me/Propofol/I know they hope I fall/But tell 'em winning is my motherf*ckin protocol/ Cause I score before I ever throw the ball These bitches washed up and aint no soap involved..."

Sounds like the female rap game is ready to heat up!

Take a listen to the fresh-out-of-jail raptress’ post-prison remix below:

Beyonce & Nicki Minaj's Official "Flawless" Remix -- THOT Shots & ElevatorGate

Posted: 03 Aug 2014 06:05 AM PDT

 photo track-flawless_zpsce7d6eba.jpg

Beyoncé & Onicka just woke up and posted up "Flawless"....the ish-talking filled REMIX. Peep the shots at THOTS and Bey's Elevatorgate explanation inside...

While taking a mini-break from the On The Run tour, Beyonce tapped Nicki Minaj to help her floss all over the just released "Flawless" remix. And both ladies came out the gate swinging...unapologetically.

On the remix, posted to Beyonce's official website, Mrs. Carter has some things to get off her chest.  While adding in new verses and arrangements on the interlude-like track from the Beyonce album, the diva says:

"These THOTS can't clock me nowadays..."

And yes, she even addressed Elevatorgate...with zero apologies:

"And we could go around and get some good karma, but no.

We escalatin', up in this b***h like elevators. Of course sometimes s**t goes down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator."

That last line she repeated twice to make sure y'all heard it.  She wrapped up her bars saying:

"You wish I was your poundcake...You wish I was your baby mama."

"Say what you want I'm the sh*t....I want everybody to feel like this tonight."

As usual, Beyonce is mixing tough words that many may take as strikes at other women...all while uplifting others by saying they should feel the same way about themselves.

With Bey interrupting about "thirsty b*tches", Nicki spits some bars about why she believes she's the queen of the rap game, why she and Bey are "every hood n*gga's dream" and her usual raunchy lyrics about her "cookie" being top notch. :

"Yo, like MJ doctor, they killing me/Propofol/I know they hope I fall/But tell 'em winning is my motherf*ckin protocol/ Cause I score before I ever throw the ball These bitches washed up and aint no soap involved..."

We wouldn't be surprised if that last line was a subtle shot at Remy Ma...since folks like to reference soap when talking about folks who are locked up.

Southern belle Bey also included a sample of Outkast's "SpottieOttieDopaliscious" on the horn riff. Peep the remix below:

 

 

We feelin' it?!
