Tyler to testify on HI celeb privacy

HONOLULU (AP) - Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler plans to attend a legislative hearing in Hawaii on a bill named for him that would limit unwanted celebrity photos and video.

A publicist for the former "American Idol" judge told The Associated Press on Thursday that Tyler has submitted written testimony supporting a plan that would give celebrities power to sue people who photograph them in an offensive way during their private lives.

Hawaii's Senate judiciary committee plans to consider the so-called Steven Tyler Act on Friday morning.

Sen. Kalani English from Maui says he introduced the bill at Tyler's request. Tyler owns a multimillion-dollar home in Maui.

More than two-thirds of the state senators have co-sponsored the bill.
