Art imitating life?
Levi Johnston is set to make his music video debut in singer Brittani Senser's "After Love," in which he plays a young lover whose girlfriend's mother disapproves of him.
"He's looking forward to doing it," Johnston's attorney Rex Butler told the Associated Press. According to a written description of the video (which Johnston and Senser will shoot next month in Los Angeles), the happy couple "share tender moments before they are driven apart by the young woman's mother," the AP says. The female heroine "tells her mother that she was wrong about her mother."
Johnston, 20 and Bristol Palin, 19, recently revealed to Us Weekly that they became engaged again while working over custody arrangements for their young son Tripp. One major hitch: Bristol's mother, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, "doesn't really approve" of the engagement.
"She's apprehensive and concerned about this. She doesn't want to see me get hurt again," Bristol told Us.
The video's creator and director Evan Winter admitted that he "kind of riffed off the real-life situation" when conceiving of the clip.
But what about Johnston's future mother-in-law's opinion on this new project? "I don't think we're going to be concerned about what Gov. Palin would want," Butler told the AP. "I think that given the script, he (Johnston) should be able to turn in a good performance."
Butler added that Johnston is still interested in pursuing an acting career -- but must confer with Bristol, too. "Of course, he's got to merge his perspective with that of his prospective wife. In other words, this is not a decision he's going to be making alone," Butler said.
