Paul McCartney may have had a super A-list premiere (see video below) for his latest visual, "My Valentine," corralling stars like Gwen Stefani and Gwyneth Paltrow for a bash at his fashion designer daughter Stella's Hollywood outpost. However, the actual clip, which McCartney directed, is remarkably unfussy. Yes, there is star power courtesy of Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp, who sign the lyrics of the song in the black-and-white video, but there is little else, including no onscreen appearance by McCartney.

At the premiere, McCartney's daughter Stella described the video as "classy," saying there is a "purity" about the simple concept.
