Who is Brittani Senser, Levi Johnston's date at the Teen Choice Awards, anyway?

By Sarah Anne Hughes

Levi Johnston has been a busy boy. First, Johnston and baby mama Bristol Palin announced their engagement. About three weeks later, they called the whole thing off, with Palin telling People she "got played" by Johnston. And to cap it all off, his manager announced that the 20-year-old would run for city office in Wasilla, Alaska. Oh, and he's filming a reality show to document his journey into the political arena.

Despite his political ambitions and failed engagement, Johnston somehow found the strength to attend this year's Teen Choice Awards. Instead of walking the red carpet with Kathy Griffin, Johnston made the rounds with a pretty brunette on his arm. So, who is this mystery girl?

Find out after the jump.

Her name is Brittani Senser and, according to her MySpace page, she's a "pop princess in the making" and "the voice of a new generation." Her father played for the Minnesota Vikings; her role model is Beyonce. If her Facebook wall is accurate, she recently caught Bieber fever, occasionally sings at church and "Thinks IPhones SUCK!!!"

Why we are talking about her?
The singer may be in the middle of the Palin-Johnston breakup. Johnston recently co-starred in the video for Senser's song "My Love." Palin spoke publicly about the video to People, saying, "The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family." According to the video's script, obtained by TMZ, Johnston "plays a man who is seemingly threatened by his lover's mother ... in order to get him to get out of her daughter's life." Before Johnston and Palin broke off their engagement, Senser told, "I'm sure that [Sarah Palin]'s going to feel like it's a little bit of a low blow to her, you know, but to be honest even if Levi wasn't in the video it probably would still be the same storyline." See, you guys? The music video that kind of mirrors Johnston's life has absolutely nothing to do with him!

The video was filmed yesterday, and Senser posted this (incriminating?) piece of info on her Facebook today: "Is tired, exhausted and so excited for everyone to see the video. I really enjoyed working with Levi and his crew. They've been so kind and supportive this weekend. Im so grateful for the experience. Ill be back soon La:)."

Is she dating Johnston?
All signs point to no. Johnston told "Entertainment Tonight" flat out that he and Senser are not dating. Even more evidence? She first met him Saturday, according to her Facebook: "Met Levi for the first time, super nice kid!!! Also shot my first Entertainment tonight interview!! Super Awesome:)" Unless "super nice kid" is code for "my secret boyfriend," it's pretty safe to say the two are just pals.

Will Senser be featured in Johnston's new reality show?
That remains to be seen. The singer was on MTV's "Making the Band 3," perhaps indicating that she's not above a reality TV appearance. But, of course, "Making the Band" was a music-related show. And I must say, her voice isn't that bad. So if Senser's playing the player, using Johnston to boost her music career, it would make sense that she would want to appear on the show and stay in the public eye. Only time will tell if Senser will have the staying power that her video co-star seems to possess.

Her voice isn't terrible, a little Wino-ish, you know, back when Amy Winehouse was known for making music and not headlines. That video is awful, tho!

Voice is ok, but damn, nobody can beat Sam Cooke.

I found her new albumn on itunes. Sounds 10 times better than the this video. She's got some talent. Hope she isn't a one hit wonder like "Ashanti" or "Jimmy Eat World".

Palin needs to get over the fact that not everything is about her and her family.
