There was pandemonium in the streets of Melbourne this morning as Davey Dreamnation awoke to the news that his long time interpreter and spokeswoman has resigned.
Announcing her intention to pursue a solo career under the name of Pixel Mouse, the formerly nameless interpreter, translator and university professor hinted that a series of alleged public outbursts by the charismatic but unpredictable star last night at the APRA awards ceremony in Sydney had finally tipped her “over the edge.”
“You know,” she said, “it’s one thing to get upset that Glenn Shorrock and the other guys from the Little River Band were invited to play and Davey wasn’t – but to leave the whole ceremony in some sort of hystrionic huff, just because he wasn’t nominated for Best Female Country Artist – I mean, this guy’s got a problem.”
In a long statement, Ms Mouse also announced release dates for her debut single and film clip respectively, as well as a series of tour dates for the coming months.
It remains unclear as to whether Dreamnation will speak formally about the split, given that he has relied, up until now, upon Ms Mouse to translate his words from Esperanto into English.
“He’s investigating the veracity of various machine translators, or so he told me,” Mouse revealed. “Good luck to him, there’s no hard feelings here. The whole thing’s a sham, you know. He can’t speak Esperanto at all. Neither can I.”
