A stay here is bound to be a crowning moment in anyone’s year. 

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mansion is being added to Airbnb’s listings 30 years after Will Smith rolled up the driveway and knocked on the door of the iconic crib for the very first time.

The grand pillared home, which features in the opening credits of the sitcom, has been decked out with ‘bold graffiti art and timeless family portraits’ – and Philly cheesesteaks will be served on silver platters.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air originally aired on TV from September 1990 until May 1996 and was the show that launched Will Smith's career.

Filming of interior scenes for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mainly took place on a Los Angeles sound-stage in pre-made sets – but the home used for the Airbnb stay, which is actually located in the posh neighborhood of Brentwood, near Bel-Air, was seen not only in the opening credits, but every time Will’s best friend, Jazz (played by DJ Jazzy Jeff), was thrown out.

His expulsion from the property was a running joke in the show. 

The stays will take place in a wing of the mansion, with access to a posh bedroom and bathroom, an amazing outdoor pool, a poolside lounge area and an elegant dining room.

Airbnb says that guests will get to 'lace up a fresh pair of Air Jordans before shooting some b-ball in the bedroom, spin throwback classics all night on turntables and don a fly look from Will's closet, from argyle prepster to all-star Bel-Air athlete'

Airbnb says that during this ‘royal overnight’ guests will be virtually welcomed to the mansion by none other than DJ Jazzy Jeff himself.

Then they’ll get to ‘lace up a fresh pair of Air Jordans before shooting some b-ball in the bedroom, spin throwback classics all night on turntables and don a fly look from Will’s closet, from argyle prepster to all-star Bel-Air athlete’.

So that fans around the world can get in on the fun, DJ Jazzy Jeff will also be hosting an Airbnb Online Experience ‘in which he’ll teach guests how to spin and scratch like a hip-hop legend’.

Guests will get to spend some virtual time with him in his home studio and ‘spin some vinyl together in honor of the good ‘ole days at the freshest crib in LA’.

Aspiring DJs can request to book this one-time event starting today at abnb.co/djjazzyjeff, and the experience will take place on October 1.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air originally aired on TV from September 1990 until May 1996 and was the show that launched Will Smith’s career.

He played Will, a fictionalized version of himself, who was sent from his home in Philadelphia to live with his wealthy aunt, uncle, cousins and their butler at their Bel-Air mansion after getting into a fight.

An ex-NRL star has admitted to throwing a rock through a window of a boxing gym he once worked at as well as intimidating staff.

Daniel Conn, 34, who once starred for the Canterbury Bulldogs, Gold Coast Titans and Sydney Roosters faced charges from three separate instances at the Hustle Boxing gym in Potts Point in Sydney.

Conn pleaded guilty to intimidation and stalking, destroying property and breaching an AVO, and on Friday was sentenced to an aggregate 14 month conditional release order.

Conn had quit working at the boutique gym last year and on December 8 he threw a rock through one of the glass windows, the Downing Centre Court heard.

Within days he returned to the gym only to be told by an employee he ‘wasn’t welcome’, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The 34-year-old then shouted: ‘You don’t know what you’ve done, you don’t know what will happen next’.

The owner of the Hustle Boxing gym then took an AVO out against Conn, which banned him from being within 100 metres of the fitness centre.

The retired NRL player then drove past the gym on a scooter on December 19 and waived to those inside.

Conn on Friday said he would cover the $4,520 cost of the broken window.

Magistrate Michael Antrum took into account that Conn had been receiving help for mental health issues but condemned his behaviour towards the gym’s staff.

The 34-year-old had also starred on the hit reality show Geordie Shore with Vicky Pattison

‘We live in a generally peaceful community and while a boxing gym may not be an obvious target for intimidation, all persons are entitled to attend a workplace without fear of intimidation,’ he said. 

The conditions of Conn’s release order means he must pay compensation to the gym as well as continue mental health treatment.

The 34-year-old retired from the NRL in 2011 and became a personal trainer.

He also featured on the hit reality show Geordie Shore in 2013 and briefly dated star Vicky Pattison.

Conn was also once the face and global athletic director of the F45 fitness chain.

Recently the ex-footy star opened up about his struggles with depression and his attempts at taking his own life.

Gary Ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will ‘change our DNA’ in bizarre rant

gary ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will change our dna in bizarre rant

AFL legend Gary Ablett Sr has taken to YouTube to deliver a complex rant linking the coronavirus pandemic to ‘End Times’ biblical prophecies, and conspiracy theories about Freemasons and the Illuminati.

The 27-minutes long video filmed in his car and posted to YouTube on Friday provided a very rare insight into the state of mind of a man who many regard as the greatest to have played the sport.

Ablett, 58, who had seldom spoken publicly throughout his playing career and since, made up for lost time with an extraordinary video that linked COVID-19 to the ‘new world order’ and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Scroll down for video.

‘It’s not natural. It didn’t come from bats. They’re lying to us and they have been for decades,’ Mr Ablett said of the virus.

‘It was man made in a lab. Deliberately designed and deliberately released.’

‘They don’t want a cure. Why? Because they want us to take their vaccines. And their vaccines are going to kill us. They want to wipe out billions of people.’

The 58-year-old says later in the video that the development of a vaccine is part of a ‘trans-humanist’ plot.

‘These vaccines they are talking about, they want to change our DNA and there are things in them… and they are trying to link us up with artificial intelligence so we can both give and receive messages.’ 

Ablett, who is the father of dual Brownlow Medallist Gary Ablett Jr, said the virus is ‘camouflage’ for globalist agendas like the introduction of a one-world currency and the banning of cash.

‘They need to crash the global economy… [so that] cash will be gone and what they are trying to bring in is their global digital currency,’ he said.

‘A one-world money system that is going to lead to the mark of the beast.’

Mr Ablett repeatedly touched on religious themes in the lengthy monologue and said the rapture – when Christians are unified with God – was ‘imminent’.

He also argued the Victorian Premier was being used by those who were conducting the conspiracy.

‘Daniel Andrews is nothing but a puppet to a very corrupt establishment and Victoria is the test case for what they are wanting to do in the entire nation,’ Mr Ablett said.

‘We need to wake up and rise up and stand against this stuff and expose them for who they really are because it’s all satanic.

‘The only real answer for the world at this time is to repent of your sins and give your heart to Jesus Christ.’

Sunscreen creator Jake Paterson busts five biggest myths about sun protection

sunscreen creator jake paterson busts five biggest myths about sun protection

With summer fast approaching in the southern hemisphere, a sunscreen creator has busted the biggest ‘myths’ around the protective cream.

Former professional surfer Jake Paterson, 47, is the managing director of We Are Feel Good Inc, a sunblock brand that is free of parabens and preservatives.

Jake, from Dunsborough in Western Australia, partnered with skin cancer physician Dr Scott McGregor to ensure each of the products had a positive impact of the skin, were non-greasy, SPF 50+ and water-resistant for four hours.

Despite the average Australian broadly knowing how important sunscreen is, we still have one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world, just behind New Zealand.

So the Australian-made brand is working hard to dispel some of the ‘myths’ around using the life-saving cream.

‘The concern for us as a sunscreen company is that these myths stop people from properly protecting their skin,’ Jake told FEMAIL.

‘Some of them include sunscreen causes health problems, sunscreen causes a vitamin D deficiency and a tan is healthy. The bottom line is Australian sunscreen is safe and if you don’t use sunscreen you will prematurely age and increase your risk of serious skin cancer.’

MYTH 1: YOU DON’T NEED SUNSCREEN IN WINTER

You need sunscreen whenever the UV rating is over three, and the UV rating is over three in most parts of Australia all year long. 

If you’re based in or north of Margaret River, Adelaide or Sydney the chances of the UV rating reaching three on most days in winter is high. Once it hits 3, it takes less than 10 minutes for sun damage to occur, the We Are Feel Good blog reported. 

Even cloud cover only blocks out 20 per cent of UV rays. 

The free to download SunSmart app will tell you what the UV rating is on any given day, wherever you are.

MYTH 2: I WILL GET A VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY IF I WEAR SUNSCREEN

The sun is one of the best sources of vitamin D for humans but you only need 10 to 15 minutes a day to convert enough for a healthy dosage.  

‘Sunlight can penetrate clothing and sunscreen too so you will be surprised by just how much you are inadvertently gaining,’ the blog read.

‘No sunscreen can completely block out 100 per cent of UV light so you are absorbing UV light and converting it to vitamin D even if you expertly reapply every two hours.’

Ensure your sunscreen is applied 20 minutes before you go outside. This is the amount of time it takes to sink into your skin and do its optimal job.

MYTH 3: SUNSCREEN MAKES ACNE WORSE

In a YouTube video Dr Scott McGregor said he gets asked this question ‘a lot’ by acne-sufferers who are concerned by the ‘greasy’ nature of sunscreen.

‘Sunscreens containing zinc can be a little bit thick and it might be thought that it blocks pores. But there is actually no evidence that it can cause pimples or make them worse,’ he said.

He recommends shopping around and finding a ‘thinner’ textured lotion that sits more easily on the skin, to give you peace of mind, but says the worst thing you can do is skip the step altogether.

MYTH 4: TANNED SKIN PROTECTS YOU FROM THE SUN

While it’s true that there is more protective melanin in darker skin types, which is thought to diffuse UVB rays, they are still at risk of skin cancer, pigmentation and collagen depletion.

This is because melanin alone doesn’t counteract the affect of UVA rays, which penetrate much deeper into your skin and cause permanent damage to your DNA.

‘Everyone should be using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating of 50+,’ the blog read.

MYTH 5: I DON’T NEED MUCH SUNSCREEN

The average-sized body will require 35ml of sunscreen for every application. 

‘This means 5ml for the face [and] 5ml for each limb, front and back. Obviously this is a lot, so use protective clothing and a hat as much as you can,’ Jake said.

If you apply less than that you won’t be receiving the full SPF50+ protection, and the same goes for SPF 30+ and 15+.
