Adam Lambert arrested for bar fight with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen

Adam Lambert and Sauli Koskinen were arrested in Finland

Adam Lambert and boyfriend Sauli Koskinen were arrested and jailed Wednesday night in Finland after brawling outside a bar in Helsinki, but Glammy on Thursday appeared to have only the slightest hangover anxiety over the incident.

"Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it," Lambert said on Twitter, capping that pithy explanation with a smiley face.

Getting released without being charged probably helped too. No need to wait for bail, then don the hoodie-and-sunglasses uniform of morning-after shame and slink around waiting for his publicist to kick into gear. Lambert had flown in from Shanghai on Monday afternoon.

Note that there's one "divided by" sign in there -- no doubt a reference to the fight that according to the Hollywood Reporter started in a back room at the DTM (Don't Tell Mama) gay bar and made its way outside.

The story gets better, mind you: A beauty queen was involved.

During the altercation, Lambert whacked a former Miss Helsinki, THR said. Sofia Ruusila, who'd been out celebrating with the boys, told a local entertainment channel she was accidentally hit by the singer when she tried to get between the two as they fought.


Koskinen, whom Lambert began dating in 2010, won the Finnish version of "Big Brother" in 2007, according to MTV News. Lambert took second place to Kris Allen on the eighth season of "American Idol," and is currently working on his second album.

Elin Nordegren, Rachel Uchitel may have someone else (Jamie Dingman) in common [Poll]

Rachel Uchitel and Elin Nordegren

Elin Nordegren has another Rachel Uchitel connection? Say it ain't so. Or, for heaven's sake, tell us what Nordegren did in a past life that would earn her such a nonstop smackdown from the universe.

Nordegren last week was linked to a new guy, Jamie Dingman, an international businessman and son of a billionaire, which didn't seem so bad. Then over the weekend, a story came via TMZ alleging Dingman and Uchitel had a little something going on as well, and were living in the same Miami home when the Tiger Woods scandal broke.


The comes courtesy of Uchitel pal Jennifer Lee Madden, who TMZ said overheard the dish while staying at that Miami house. Madden is the Playboy model and former Bellagio VIP host who was outed last year by Vegas Confidential as one of two sources who brought the Rachel-Tiger affair story to the National Enquirer in November 2009. Uchitel was a VIP host in Vegas and New York, and Woods' path to several of his mistresses wound its way through the VIP-club scene.

Though the facts of Uchitel's love life have been misreported in the past, Gossip Cop gives this scenario better-than-average odds in the accuracy department.

The way TMZ tells it, when Dingman heard from Uchitel that she was getting serious with Woods, he joked that it was OK, he'd just date Tiger's wife.

So we have to ask ...

Kanye West keeping his mouth shut? It's much less fun

Kanye West Have you heard the latest about Kanye West? Well, no, you couldn't have, because the news about Kanye West is his silence.

It appears that the loudest mouth in hip-hop -- and that is saying something -- is trying something new: Not talking. At all. Not tweeting, not taking questions on red carpets, not even speaking during officially arranged interviews.

For a man who loves the sound of his own voice -- to the point where he interrupts other celebrities during their award show speeches -- this is uncharted territory.

The Great Silence of 2011 actually began last November, soon after West met with Matt Lauer for an interview on "Today." The interview, let’s just say, got contentious. The heat later spilled over into Twitter, with West piling up his signature exclamation points of outrage. ("Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!!! I don't trust anyone!")

Then after the noise -- nothing. Well, almost nothing. It took awhile for West to wind down his Twitter account, but wind it down he eventually did. He has been silent on that medium since March, and on red carpets too. During an appearance at the CDFA Awards on Monday, West talked to other celebrities on the carpet, but not the media. Unless it was to tell the media that he wasn’t telling.

"Sorry,” he told E! Online, shaking his head. “I don't do interviews."

And back in January, there was the silent interview. Yes, really. At a reception featuring artist George Condo, who did the album art for West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," West emerged to stand by the artist’s side. New York  magazine tried asking the rapper a few questions. An elegant kabuki dance of an interview ensued.

We here at the Ministry aren't sure how long West can keep this up without dissolving into a couture-clad puddle of despair. (West is nothing if not well-dressed.) After all, just this week the guy put out a new video almost custom-built for the morning talk-show circuit: chainsaws, decapitated models, the whole nine. And yet, all we've gotten is a disclaimer at the front of the video, saying that the piece should be judged as art, nothing more.

We're not betting people, but we'd wager our favorite Celine blouse that Mount Kanye erupts sooner rather than later. What fun is he otherwise?
