Steven Tyler has spoken out about the bill he proposed in his adopted Hawaii that would prevent paparazzi from targeting celebrities.
Senate members voted last week in favor of the rocker's bill to protect the privacy of vacationing stars in the state, and now the so-called Steven Tyler Act will go to the House of Representatives for consideration.

Tyler was so determined to get the new legislation, which will make it easier for celebrities to sue photographers, passed that he testified in a Hawaii court last month.
And he's still celebrating the partial victory, telling Billboard.com, "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 going to get it."
Tyler persuaded lawmakers to introduce the bill at the end of last year after private images of him and his family on vacation at his beach property were published online and in magazines.

Joking about his Aerosmith bandmate Joe Perry, he adds, "Now at least Joe and I can go to Maui and walk around naked in the back lawn and write some crazy songs."
