  Rapper 50 Cent guest-stars as himself in "Pranksta Rap," a new episode of Fox's The Simpsons on Sunday, Feb. 13.

 Here's how Fox describes the episode.

  "After sneaking out of the house to attend a 50 Cent concert and getting nabbed by Marge and Homer, Bart fakes his own kidnapping, hiding out in Kirk Van Houten's bachelor pad, to prevent being grounded. It's up to Springfield's finest -- bumbling Police Chief Clancy Wiggum -- to save him.

  "Inspired by an apparition of Barney Fife, Wiggum cracks the case, rescues Bart and is promoted to Police Commissioner, while wrongly imprisoned Kirk becomes a ladies' man among the felon-loving singles of Springfield."

 In other The Simpsons news:

Somehow, his soulless body still lives...and from all appearances, it's doing great without him...
