Steven Tyler - Steven Tyler Thrilled About New Hawaiian Privacy Law

Subscribe to Steven Tyler alerts

Steven Tyler has spoken out about new laws he introduced in his adopted Hawaii that prevent paparazzi from targeting celebrities.

Senate members voted in favour of the rocker's bill to protect the privacy of vacationing stars in the state last week (ends08Mar13) and now the so-called Steven Tyler Act will go to America's House of Representatives for consideration.

Tyler was so determined to get the new legislation, which will make it easier for holidaying celebrities to sue snappers who try to photograph them, passed in the state he testified in a Hawaii court last month (Feb13).

And he's still celebrating the victory, telling, "They (photographers) are allowed in (to Hawaii) with their lenses and they get the most intimate of shots, which is what they are really looking for to make money. Not on my watch! It's really about privacy at its upmost - when you're inside and the doors are closed."

And Tyler, who owns a beach home on Maui, adds, "They chase my kids and get in the way of traffic. We almost got in an accident and so before it happens, you want to do something about it. They're just looking for a taste of blood. They're not gonna get it."

Tyler introduced the bill at the end of last year (12) after private images of him and his family on vacation at his beach property were published online and in magazines.

He jokes, "Now at least (Aerosmith bandmate) Joe (Perry) and I can go to Maui and walk around naked in the back lawn and write some crazy songs."
