Adam Lambert gets arrested after a bar brawl in Finland, Ireland’s Oxegen festival will sit out 2012, and Deadmau5 will get his day in Vegas.
Lambert Dust Up
Singer Adam Lambert probably isn’t the first musician you’d pick for artist most likely to get into a bar brawl, but the American Idol runner-up evidently let his fists do the talking in Helsinki, Finland.
Evidently Lambert and his boyfriend – Finnish “Big Brother” star Sauli Koskinen – were in a popular gay bar in Helsinki when the couple began fighting according to Detective Superintendent Petri Juvonen.
The rumble eventually moved out to the street where Lambert was reportedly arrested for allegedly hitting two people who tried to break up the fight. No weapons were involved and no one was seriously hurt, according to Juvonen.
Both men were released a few hours later. Word is no further action will be taken.
