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.
Barrymore seemed cheery as she flew to Vegas on a private plane, surrounded by #Besties, wearing a festive sushi shirt. (OK, so celebrities don’t need to fly coach to Vegas.)
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?
The weekend fun continued with a meet-and-greet with David Copperfield. Then came the icing on the Vegas cake: Ms. Jennifer Lopez herself. You’d think it doesn’t get any better than seeing J.Lo’s residency show at Planet Hollywood. For Barrymore and her pals, it does: an up close and personal hug from the star herself. 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?
