make a fuss over (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 over her whenever she walks into the room. I think it's a bit bizarre that so many people are making such a fuss over a new smartphone. It's just another piece of technology!
