Singer Adam Lambert has described a fight with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen in Finland a “drunken, messy moment.”

Lambert and Koskinen were arrested last month outside Helsinki gay club Don't Tell Mama. According to various reports, the couple quarreled on the street after being tossed out of the club. They were questioned by authorities and later released.

In a radio interview with Virgin Radio's Cousin Vinny, Lambert said he was trying to turn a negative into a positive.

“It wasn't what it was made out to be. As opposed to any sort of violent attack – which is was not. It was merely a very immature, drunken, messy moment,” Lambert said. “And I take full responsibility for that. I have walked away from it and kind of reflected on it. We as a couple have decided to change our lifestyle a little bit. We are being really healthy right now. The biggest thing to me walking away from it is that I'm lucky enough to be a role model for many young people and this is not the type of behavior that I really think is the best example. So I'm taking the negative, turning it into a positive and from here on out I'm taking a lot more responsibility for my behavior and my actions. I owe that to my fans, and to my family and to my loved ones.” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
