over the moon
dear hollywood publicists,
why oh why when your celeb clients become pregnant, is the response almost always that "they are over the moon" about it? what the what? i am not entirely sure what that phrase even means and i really don't understand why that is the go to comment. is there some sort of publicist handbook of cliche responses?
so what in the world does this statement mean? is it because once your celeb client has become pregnant, they become as big as a cow? or that their career is similar to the cows, as in no one knows what it was doing before it jumped over the moon and no really cares what it's going to be doing after? is that harsh?
so when one celeb announces their pregnancy and says that they "are very excited" does that mean they are less excited than someone who is "over the moon?" what if someone announcing says that they are "over the stars " does that mean that they are super duper excited and that they win? is this just further proof that hollywood is just mindless and they say that most ridiculous things?
i will leave you with a haiku, because they are fetching awesome. tell your friends.
so you are pregnant
you must be over the moon
it's nonsense and lame
i don't get hollywood,
