The frontman of American rock bank Aerosmith Steven Tyler testifies at a legislative hearing in Hawaii on a bill bearing his name, which would limit people's freedom to take photos and videos of celebrities. 

It is the first time the Steven Tyler Act is discussed publicly. 

"The paradise of Hawaii is a magnet for celebrities who just want a peaceful vacation," Tyler said in a statement. "As a person in the public eye, I know the paparazzi are there and we have to accept that. But when they intrude into our private space, disregard our safety and the safety of others, that crosses a serious line that shouldn’t be ignored," Tyler commented.
