Isn't this the same guy who sang I Don't Want to Miss a Thing? LOLz!
Rock God Steven Tyler spoke to Hawaii's state Senate Judiciary Committee today and his testimony helped approve legislation which could ideally prevent the paparazzi from being so recklessly intrusive.
The Aerosmith frontman doesn't mind being an American Idol, per se, he's just tired of shutterbugs snapping pics of him in the shower!
In his HIGHlarious statement to the Hawaiian lawmakers, he said:
""First and foremost I'd like to say, being a personality, no matter where we go, we get shot [by photographers]. It's part of the deal-io, and it's OK. It kind of drives us crazy, but, like my mom said, 'You asked for it, Steven.' But when I'm in my own home and I'm taking a shower or changing clothes or eating or spending Christmas with my children, and I see paparazzi a mile away, shooting at me with lenses this long, and then seeing that very picture in People magazine, you know, it hurts… That's what they do, they are just constantly taking from us."
Liv Tyler's proud papa makes several pretty good points!
If and when the "Steven Tyler Act" is signed into law, it should become easier for wronged celebz to take legal action against the camera men and women trying to exploit them!
Drumming legend Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac was also on hand to show his support for the potential law.
