make a fuss of (someone or something)

make a fuss of (someone or something)

To give someone or something an inordinate amount of attention, affection, or praise. I can't stand the way everyone makes a fuss of her whenever she walks into the room. I think it's a bit bizarre that so many people are making such a fuss of a new smartphone. It's just another piece of technology!
