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 singer says 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 Friday.
Senator Kalani English says he introduced the bill at Tyler's request. Tyler owns a multimillion-dollar home in Maui. English says the bill will spur celebrity tourism. Opponents say the bill could be unconstitutional.
