Steven Tyler Proposes Paparazzi Regulation Bill

20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation's Oscar Viewing Party - Arrivals

Rockstar Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and American Idol fame added his name to the list of celebrities who have made public statements for regulating paparazzi behavior. He joins famous actress Jennifer Aniston and singer Justin Bieber in calling for protection from paparazzi for stars, and for the paparazzi themselves. Tyler proposed Hawaii Senate Bill 456, now affectionately called the Steven Tyler Act. If approved, would provide legal recourse for people photographed by the paparazzi when they are with their families or undertaking personal activities that are reasonably private. His aim is to protect Hawaii as a haven for stars’ relaxation. While Tyler understands being photographed while in public is part of celebrity life in the United States, he hopes to obtain a measure of protection when photographers actively invade people’s private spaces. The bill will stand before a Senate hearing in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is currently supported by approximately 75% of the Senate.
