They most likely keep writing about Tom Daley-Dustin because it gets them the more page views over the never-ending-crazy-Right-Wing-person said this or most of the Rupaul recaps. There’s a reason why sites keep writing about certain subjects and it’s because they’re the ones that most people click on.
Just to the right of this comment section is the (paid for) suggestion feed for stories on other sites, one of which is the deep, thought-provoking “Celebrities Who Used to Model for Abercrombie and Fitch.” You know what’s funny about this, what would appear to be, a silly attempt at click-bait? It’s probably going to be one of that site’s most-read features for the day.
Daley-Dustin is the perfect Ashton-Demi story for the gay community to wrap its pop-culture-destoryed attention around and gossip about during holiday get-togethers and drinks with the boys at the club this weekend (again).
Stop thinking that the world doesn’t read this (seemingly trite) stuff.
Way many sites from Just Jered to Huff Po to Perez himself have made a nice mint making “______ of the Year” stars out of couples like these two because people (and lots of them on Queerty I can almost bet) love reading about this stuff. “What will happen next between those two?”, “Which one will cheat on the other first?” are no different being uttered out of our mouths as they would out of all of the straight people thinking the SAME exact thing about every straight celebrity couple’s relationship that is splashed on the supermarket tabloids every week. Same concept, same cash pay out for media. If the public didn’t want it, the media wouldn’t give it to them.
If Queerty did a Listicle like, “10 Things About Tom Daley-Dustin’s Abs That We Love” it would, hands-down, be the biggest draw on their site for the week, if not month.
Why do you think they brought back “Morning Goods” gang?
It’s called “Business”.
And this couple’s relationship (for good and bad) is going to bring a lot of business to the LGBT media.
