London, Dec.19, 2018 (Reuters/NAN)
Former Beatle, Paul McCartney, has teamed up with Oscar winner Emma Stone in the music video for his new single “Who Cares’’, a song he hopes will inspire youngsters to stand up to bullying.
The pair is shown miming and dancing on an all-black and white set alongside harlequin-like figures that tormented Stone before she and McCartney made their escape in his car.
The veteran singer-songwriter had also joined forces with non-profit organisation Creative Visions to launch the #WhoCaresIDo campaign, inspired by a line in the song – “Who Cares About You, I do’’.
“My hope is that if there are kids being bullied, and they are maybe listening to this song and watching this video, they might just think its not as bad,” McCartney said on his website.
“That its the kind of thing you can just stand up to and laugh off and get through.”
McCartney, who on Sunday was joined on stage by fellow Beatle Ringo Starr and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood as he performed in London, had collaborated with other stars in the past including rapper Kanye West and singer Rihanna.
Stone won the Best Actress Academy Award for “La La Land”.
“Who Cares’’ featured on McCartney’s 17th solo studio album, “Egypt Station”.
