Paparazzi shots of Steven Tyler may be at an all-time low. The Aerosmith legend will be speeding by paparazzi on the mainland in his new $1.1 million Venom GT Spyder (that can reach 200 MPH in 16 seconds) and allowed to enjoy his freedom in Hawaii, with a so-called 'Steven Tyler Act' recently passed that will protect celebrities from 'overager paparazzi.'

"The Hawaii state senate has passed a Bill that seeks to protect celebrities from overeager paparazzi. The so-called Steven Tyler Act would create a civil violation if people take unwanted photos or videos of others in their private moments," MSN informs.

"The rock star from Massachusetts asked Senator Kalani English to sponsor the legislation after unwanted photos were taken of him last December in Maui. Twenty-three of the state's 25 senate members voted in favor of the Bill, which now goes to the House for consideration," the same media outlet states.

"Senator Sam Slom, the body's only Republican, opposed the Bill. He says the state already has adequate privacy laws and that the state legislature has been the butt of jokes across the country for its support of the Bill," adds MSN.

This week, the Aerosmith singer showed up at a benefit held by bandmate Joe Perry in a car worth $1.1 million. Tyler pulled in to the Stuart House benefit in a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder that reportedly was a custom creation, according to Yahoo.

"Steven came to us last year and asked if we could build his Venom GT as a roadster. We had to make a few structural changes to our integrated rollcage in order to be able to fit the removable top," John Hennessey said in 2012 according to Yahoo. "This increased the weight of our vehicle by about 30 lbs to a curb weight of 2743 lbs. We decided to increase the Venom GTs power to 1244 bhp to maintain our 1 horsepower per 1 kilogram power to weight ratio."

The car can go from 0 to 200 mph in just 16 seconds according to Yahoo, making it one of the fastest cars in the world.
