Adam Lambert clarifies: No punches, no injuries, no charges

Adam Lambert reportedly landed in the clink earlier this week after an alleged altercation in Finland, and while the former "American Idol" contestant has been able to joke about it, he's also clearing up a few misconceptions.

According to People magazine, Lambert and his boyfriend, reality star Sauli Koskinen, reportedly landed in jail early Thursday morning after they were said to have gotten into an alcohol-induced fight at a Helsinki bar.

The report says the two were questioned and then released on Thursday afternoon, and Lambert later offered a complicated recount of the night's events.

"Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion," Lambert posted on Twitter Thursday. He added that "jail+guilt+press" equals a "lesson learned."

But it seems that he and his beau were able to chuckle about what transpired: "Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it," Lambert wrote.

Later that day, though, Lambert clarified that he didn't find humor in brawling.

"Violence is not to be taken lightly," he wrote. "Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates."

    Adam needs a mentor – somebody who's been in the business for years like David Bowie, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney or Mick Jagger – a star with staying power, in other words, who can straighten him out before he becomes another Boy George or George Michael. I hate seeing talented trainwrecks in the making ala Amy Winehouse. Pray for him, people – and please be kind to each other! The world is in enough of an angry mess as it is, why add to it?

    Why are so many trolls posting nonsense? And not even funny remarks. I dunno about you guys but I've had some drunken, pushing, jealous fights with partners. No one is perfect. You work hard, you party hard. Plus jet lag really alters you. He flew from LA to China to Finland over the course of a week. Let it go. Celebrities getting drunk and stupid is not news.

    ONE MORE THING: Perez Hilton has been rejected by Adam Lambert repeatedly staring before Adam was on Idol. They go way back. Anything Perez says about Adam is out of jealousy and spite. Remember that. He took this non-incident and turned it into 636 related stories. Only a handful got the facts rights. Thanks for getting them right in this article.

    People from FINLAND who were actually THERE have given statements. No PUNCHES or SLAPS etc..Just drunk and disorderly. In other-words, just like EVERY night for Snarky, Tracie and Richard. I can't believe the Neanderthals here on a CNN site, GAWD!......Peace~OUT.

    Your first line is "i find tracie funny" you fool. I guess YOU can not read or comprehend your own jibberish. And for the record, it doesn't rile me up at all, just stating a fact that everyone else can see as well (with the exception of goofs as yourself). I couldn't be bothered by useless trolls as yourselves, it's actually amusing.. Thank YOU for replying and attempting to defend your trolling friends. Just what i wanted! 🙂

    @guest – if you find Tracie funny then you are just as pathetic as it is, with no sense of humor whatsoever. Humor is alot different than being an idiot. And calling it a genius is pure stupidity. But it takes one to know one I guess – small things amuse small minds. You probably ARE Tracie!

    Hey Tracie the Troll.. Do you have nothing better to do than comment on every single story in your same disgusting way? You're not even smart enough to come up with something different, just the same loser BS. The only one who thinks it's amusing is you. Get a life because clearly you do not have one – and it's very clear why. Life must suck being so pathetic, huh?

    No, the article doesn't state no physical fighting, Adam does. You got that? If not, re-read. And really? You had to look all that up on who corroborated what? You're a loser; you understand, right?

      It just proves to me that you can't read and accept the truth. You were there of course to witness the altercation ?

      It's 'would have' (as in would've) NOT 'would of'.

      Perhaps you should spend more time working on your grammar skills and less time obsessing over your foul responses. Your ignorance, on many levels,is showing!!

      Oh, and hey.....did you read that Adam Lambert DID NOT throw any punches or behave violently whatsoever? I thought you'd like to know!!
