But what, really, is so surprising to people about his appeal? Pete has been linked to the likes of Ariana Grande, Margaret Qualley, Kaia Gerber, Phoebe Dynevor, and now Kim Kardashian. Yet the mass amounts of clickbait and general shock and confusion around Pete’s love life exposes that today’s culture may not be as progressive as we think.
