Eighty-seven-year-old Instagram sensation Baddiewinkle has garnered 1.8 million followers, been listed as one of TIME’s most influential people and is BFFs with Khloe Kardashian and Miley Cyrus.

The social media maven is now starring in her first National commercial for Smirnoff ICE Electric Flavors – a commercial that features her real-life friends partying in her living room.

“They didn’t know about this for three or four months because I didn t tell them,” she said of telling her squad about alter-ego Baddie. “One night we were all together and I said, ‘Girls, I’ve got something to tell you – I’m coming out.'”

“I’m on Instagram!” she said with a laugh.

Her insta-fame has taken her to award shows and afterparties, and her raver-chic wardrobe even landed her next to Giuliana Rancic talking fashion at the Grammy’s.

“I do dress down [sometimes],” she insists. “I have a lot of t-shirts with different people on them. And I like blue jeans,” she shared, before clarifying: “Tight blue jeans.”

On this particular day Baddie was donning a sequined robe and her token “Baddie” choker necklace.

“The best part about getting older is you can do whatever you want to – and have fun with it.”

When asked what her biggest regret is, she paused before declaring: “I have no regrets!”
