Adam Lambert talks Finland arrest: 'We had too much to drink'

Lambert explained the situation by tweeting: "Jetlag+Vodka= blackout. Us÷blackout= irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press= lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+ hangover burgers= laughing bout it. :)"

Luckily, he stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week to explain things a little more eloquently. He was a little hesitant to talk about it, but finally said, "You know, relationships are work. I'm so lucky to have fallen in love with a great partner, and everybody has their ups and downs. Things happen. When you add alcohol to a situation, things can get out of control, and 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 just childish messiness."

Not to worry, Glamberts -- your man is not on a downward spiral.

"What I learned from the experience is that I owe it to myself, to my loved ones, and to my fans, to be a little more adult," he says. His New Year's Resolution is to clean up his act. "We're juicing, we're exercising, and I feel amazing."

Lambert says that being in a gay relationship in the public eye is tough, but that he loves Koskinen and that they're doing well. "I think the universe always sends you wake-up calls," he adds. Unfortunately, the universe sent him his in a Finnish jail cell.
