Adam Lambert Talks Fight in Finland

Adam Lambert makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote his new single, “Better Than I Know Myself,” on Thursday (January 19).

During his appearance on the show, the 29-year-old singer talked about his recent fight with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen that led to their arrest in Finland late last year.

“You know, relationships are work and I’m so lucky to have fallen in love with a great partner,” Adam said. “Everybody has their ups and downs, things happen. When you add alcohol to a situation, things can get out of control and some people can get upset and emotional. What happened was, we had too much to drink. We screwed up. There were no injuries, no violence. It was more of childish, foolish, messiness.”

“I was a little irresponsible and I think what I learned from the experience was that I owe it to myself, to my loved ones, and to my fans to be a little more adult and pull it together,” Adam added. “New Year’s resolution was like ‘OK, we’re cleaning up the act, and we’re juicing, and exercising,’ and I feel amazing.”

    I knew it was never anything serious, we have all done that, been there in our relationships but being in the public eye gives gossip mongers something to bully & embellish like Perez Hilton did, why anyone believes that guy is beyond me! I love Adam, his bf Sauli is a sweetheart, you can see the love in their eyes, and OMG, can we talk about his performance if his new single BTIKM? WOW! Love that song, Adam is vocal GOD!!

    @Jordan: I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions websites

    Most people aren’t aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites

    The site that has the best deals is and I checked with the Better Business Bureau and was told that it is all legit.

    How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Loews gift cards for $48.

    Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?

  • Question!

    Serious comment:

    Since he’s all girly and she’s all manly, can there be a possibility that these two could FALL IN LOVE? She likes women, he’s sorta like one. He likes men, she’s sorta like one. Food for thought….

    brought to you by the hungry stomachs of America…probably should have less hungry stomachs, huh?

  • MaryL

    Why would you have to say that? It’s not funny. It’s just mean. It’s because of people like you that there’s bullying.

  • MaryL

    My response was a reply to “?”

  • Jack

    He screwed up and his Label told him to get his shit together. SIMPLE

  • DJ

    We’ve all had bad behavior (at least those of us who know how to have fun) but there comes a time when you have to grow up and take responsibility and acknowledge what is really important in your life. Nothing good comes from hanging out at clubs or bars or excessive drinking with your significant other. No relationship can survive that. It looks like Adam is taking responsibility for his actions and doing something about it. I know it took me a long time to understand that you don’t have to get obliterated to have fun. This new lifestyle certainly is having a positive effect on him. I can’t recall ever seeing him look so healthy and handsome. I hope this sticks. This is a pivotal time in his career and in his life. I’d like to see a talent as great as his succeed and not have these episodes hinder his career.

  • Jason

    You are right there should be “less hungry” but there is no short supply of stupid and biggots like you.

  • StopThisBullshit

    @Question!: if u r guy, can there be possibility you fall in love with another guy? Or if u r a female, maybe for you to fall in love with another female? Food for thought.

  • TrueFact

    @Jack: Not arrested, detained for questioning and letting them sleep off being drunk. No punches, no injuries, no charges. Police called it a “minor incident.” Initial reports exaggerated by one blogger. And people like you add more flavours to the water to make it curry so we all can enjoy a good fake story.

  • Ami

    Well in Finland it is perfectly normal. They must have done something really bad if they got arrested :D

  • andy

    Who cares about’s his business! To all the purist out there get a life!! At least he has owned up to his mistakes, which is more than I can say about other personalities, who have done far worse things!! But of course he is being held to a higher standard for some reason.
    I’m interested in his music not his personal life!!

  • Tatyanya

    I would really hate it if every time I had a fight with my husband over the years, it was put in the media like with Adam. Ok, sometimes you drink too much and you act stupid, should that be a major news story?

  • MollyD


    Um, initial reports were very similar to the police report – so not exaggerated by one blogger. You just didn’t see the police reports because the Finnish fans didn’t want to translate them because they made the “happy couple” look so bad.

    -Should it be a major news story? No.
    -Was it going to be a major news story? Absolutely. That’s reality.
    -Was the story of this incident going to overshadow his music news, at least for a while: Absolutely. Also reality — people want to read gossip much more than they want to read about creativity.

    I see no need to defend him or complain about the negative press — he’s been in the biz for years and knew what he was getting into: entertainers trade-off anonymity for fame and fortune. Ultimately, it won’t matter much at all since this country does not care one iota about drunkenness or its consequencs.

    I will give Lambert credit for not complaining about the negative attention while seeking out positive attention the way so many celebrities do.

    @Jack: And you know this to be true because?

  • GetReal

    Good damage control, Adam. I am one fickle fan of yours, but you’re on my good list this week. Exercise, juicing, and owning up to your mistakes are the behaviors of a good role model. So is monogamy, by the way. Lots of kids are watching!

  • Adamfan
