This 87-Year-Old Grandma Lives Life Way Harder Than You

Have you ever felt that your grandparents just don’t get you? You’re busy Tweeting, Instagraming and Photoshopping cat pictures while your grandpa is running your cat through the scanner and yelling at your computer. This granny is so cool, she not only gets your generation but she lives life waaaaay harder than you do.

 

This is Helen Van Winkle, a gangster granny that has 1.5 million Instagram followers and way more street cred than you.

 

She poses in hoodies, tie-dye shirts, shorts, bikinis and bling.

 

She decided to change her look up after the death of her son and husband, feeling that life was too short to give a crap about what other people think.

Helen has an alter-ego called Baddie who she says has taught her a lot. One of those lessons is to live and let live.

 

“I don’t like ‘old women’ clothes. I never wore them in my life.” -Baddie Winkle.

 

Baddie Winkle is followed on Instagram by Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and Nicole Richie because of her inspirational approach to life.

Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

 

Your new favorite grandma is making waves because of her approach to life and her way of coping with two big life losses.

 

She’s proof that it’s not how old you are but the kind of spirit you have that matters.

She says: “You’re only here once in your lifetime, so have fun.”

 

Fame hasn’t gone to her head…

 

…but the perks are pretty nice as she now has designers sending her clothes.

She only wears the clothes she likes because Baddie has style.

 

Her great-granddaughter helps her pick out the clothes she wears and is probably loving having a grandma that’s this cool.
