Levi Johnston Will Star in Sarah Palin Music Video
By PopEater Staff Posted Jul 23rd 2010 05:00PM
Levi Johnston is still milking out his 15-minutes of fame and will make his music video debut with singer-songwriter Brittani Senser next month in Los Angeles. Johnston, who recently become re-engaged to Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, will play a lover whose romance is thwarted by his girlfriend's disapproving mother, according to a Universal Music Group record label and Johnston's attorney. "He's looking forward to doing it," Rex Butler, Johnston's attorney told The Associated Press. "It will give him an opportunity to act a little bit in front of a camera. He's done a commercial before, but something like this is a little more involved."
According to a written description of the video's story line, the couple share tender moments before they are driven apart by the young woman's mother. Unaware that her mom's interference forced her boyfriend to go, she "throws herself into her mother's arms. She tells her mother that she was wrong about Levi."
The couple announced their reunion in Us Weekly earlier this month. "We got engaged two weeks ago," Bristol tells the magazine. "It felt right, even though we don't have the approval of our parents."
The couple says they reconnected three months ago, while hashing out the custody details for their 18-month-old son, Tripp. Bristol and Levi were engaged once before, but called it off just weeks before she gave birth.
But Sarah Palin doesn't approve, the couple revealed. It was ultimately Sarah who played grandma and comforted Bristol during her toughest times, while Johnston soaked up his fifteen minutes of fame by posing for Playgirl and hanging out with comedienne Kathy Griffin.
Asked if there might be concerns about Sarah Palin's reaction to the project, Butler replied: "I don't think we're going to be concerned about what Gov. Palin would want. I think that given the script, he (Johnston) should be able to turn in a good performance."
Johnston and Senser are scheduled to shoot the video on location in Los Angeles on Aug. 9, the day after the pair attend the Teen Choice Awards.
Senser said she's be glad to have Bristol Palin "come on down and hang out" with her and Johnston at the Teen Choice Awards and during the video shoot.
