    Pop-star Adam Lambert spend the night between Wednesday and Thursday in jail in Helsinki, Finland. Lambert, who dates the Finnish BB-star Sauli Koskinen, had come to Finland to spend Christmas with Sauli and his family. The young men got in the fight in a popular Helsinki gay bar Don´t Tell Mama. Both were arrested and spent the night in jail, but are now released, and there will be no charges.

    We Finns are ofd course so happy and proud to have an internationally famous son-in-law.;)

    Is domestic violence OK if it is between two men? I can't imagine the reactions would be the same if Adam had gotten into a fight with a woman. I am not being all sensitive here, I found the event funny myself, but I do think a double standard of sorts exists.

    Was it really domestic violence or was it just two people who got into a fight in a bar? I think it's being treated the same as if it was a fight between any two men, or any two women or any two of the same sex. Now a physical fight between a man and a woman would have been treated more seriously because of the perceived strength advantage the man has over the woman.

    Listening to his new single after reading this article makes it a whole lot more :rofl: and :eek:

    Domestic violence is never okay, no matter if it's between a man or a woman, two women, or two men.

    In this case though, it wasn't really violence. More like a heated lover's spat exacerbated by alcohol. These are his tweets from his yesterday:

    Was Lambert fighting with Koskinen, or that they were fighting with others? Not domestic violence if they were fighting with others.

    They were fighting with each other. They weren't hitting each other though and no one was hurt.

    Sorry that the first post was unclear, they were fighting with each other. And indeed, domestic violence should not be tolerated at all, even if it happens in a public place.

    DTM (Don´t tell mama) is the leader of the GLTB scene in Finland. Very trashy in a very good way.:glamor:

    Thanks for clarifying that no one was hit. All the media outlets left that bit out of their reports. They made it sound like punches were thrown and lots of scratching ensued.

    So in Finland, if you raise your voice to another person, you spend the night in jail? Harsh!!! :eek:

    Loius Vuitton at ten paces?

    Seriously, Adam should have been arrested by the police by some of his crimes against fashion ages ago.

    I think they hit each other, too. And were very drunk. (Well, THAT is nothing very unusual in Finland, I have to say:slinkaway.)

    I'm sure it's just a coincidence that a publicity-friendly incident happened the week his new song was released, right?

    Of course. ;) He seems to have a knack for doing that. I don't know if he has the best timing or the worst timing in the biz. As publicity-friendly as the incident is, it's not very reputation-friendly, which makes me think it's actually coincidental.

    Especially given he wasn't arrested. Total coincidence.

    Getting drunk and getting into a fight in a night club isn't reputation-friendly for his target audience of "rebellious" teenagers?

    (It was a rhetorical question. It is. ;))

    I think Adam is going to get a pass on this and it will quickly blow over ... given that it's Christmas and people are distracted and in a generally forgiving moood. But, in the future, he would be wise to conduct his domestic quarrels out of the public eye. We all know how the tabloids get ...
