Talk about art imitating life!
The moose-shootin’ soon-to-be son-in-law of Republican darling Sarah Palin will make his music video debut as a lover whose romance is thwarted by his girlfriend’s disapproving mother, a Universal Music Group rep confirmed Friday.
Levi Johnston, 20, has agreed to appear in the video for “After Love,” a ballad from Minneapolis R&B/pop singer-songwriter Brittani Senser, 26.
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.”
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. Johnston attended last year’s ceremony last year with comedienne Kathy Griffin.
Producers of the video say they’re “unconcerned” about the potential “backlash” they may receive from the disgruntled Palin Camp. Sarah’s made it abunduntly clear that she is not on board with daughter Bristol’s decision to wed Levi — despite the fact that the pair are parents of a one-year-old son, Tripp.
