In true free-spirited fashion, Drew Barrymore hopped onto a plane to celebrate her divorce

Ah, the old cliché: Celebrities, they're just like us. Drew Barrymore has just finalized her divorce after three years of marriage to husband Will Kopelman. And what does she do to forget her troubles and blow off some steam? She heads to #Vegasbaby and, of course, documents the whole thing on Instagram.

The group then hit up Pole Position Raceway, according to People, to spend the afternoon go-karting. Can you think of a better way to forget your troubles than flooring it in a go-kart?

Barrymore is as big a fan of J.Lo as the rest of us are, using lots of hashtags to caption her photo: "#nofilter #goddess #vegasbaby #thishappened @jlo #allihave #amazingmom #loveher."

It's great to see Barrymore enjoying herself and taking some time away from what can surely have been a dark few months. Vegas, friends and J. Lo can't cure everything, but they can definitely help, right?
