The Rolling Stone Magazine reported March 13, 2013 the Steven Tyler Act has been passed in Hawaii's Senate. This Act will give stars protection from paparazzi and allows them to sue over intrusive photos or recordings taken of them in the state.
Twenty-three of Hawaii's 25 Senate members voted in favor of the bill, according to the Associated Press, and the measure will now go to the House for consideration. "Now at least Joe [Perry] and I can go to Maui and walk around naked in the back lawn and write some crazy songs," Tyler joked.
The Aerosmith lead singer and former American Idol judge had originally proposed the bill to Senator Kalani English after unwanted images of him and his family hanging in Maui were published last December. He said that even at his oceanview home in Maui, there are no visible windows due to constant violations of his privacy. Next 'Steven Tyler Act' will be sent to the Hawaii House of Representatives.
