We would never tell you to unfollow Beyoncé on Instagram.

That said, we will tell you that Tina Knowles, aka Miss Tina aka the woman who gave birth to Beyoncé, is the one you should be following on Instagram (#NoDisrespectToSolange). Sure, @beyonce -- RIP @baddiebey, we miss you! -- is still our No. 1 source for photos of the back of Blue Ivy’s head and selfies of Beyoncé, but let us upgrade you.

So maybe she didn’t have one of the Top 10 Most-Liked Instagram Photos of 2015 like Yonce did, but here are 19 reasons that you should double tap Miss Tina ASAP:

1. First of all, because obviously there are pictures of Beyoncé here too:

"Charlies Angels "

2. Because Miss Tina knows the true definition of waking up like this:

"I woke up like this" my curls from yesterday are replaced with frizz! Yikes

3. Because Miss Tina always finds her angle:

Nothing like the cool breeze of the ocean. One of many of God's Gifts to us

4. And because Miss Tina always finds her light, even in the hospital:

5. Because where do you think Beyoncé learned how to pose in front of art?

. A day of Art !!!

(And where do you think B learned to post a picture even if it’s kind of blurry, but you’re really feeling your look?)

6. Because Miss Tina is a proud mom, but she’s not like a regular mom:

Solange's new sneakers for Puma, off the hook!! Kelly, Melina and ME at AMERICAN RAG buying our sneakers.

7. And she’s a proud grandma, but she’s not like a regular grandma:

H town like a boss!

8. But Miss Tina is still relatable. Can’t you imagine your own mother posting this caption as a Facebook status?

Happy Day!! Getting out of Hospital on my way to airport to go home Thanks for the prayers!!!!

9. Or not knowing she's posing for a video, but then posting it anyway?

Because maybe she didn’t know how to switch from video to photo on her phone, or maybe your dad didn’t know he was even filming a video at all?

10. Because Taylor Swift has NOTHING on Miss Tina’s #SquadGoals:

Great Gatsby Girls in the House!

(Yes, that is Kris Jenner.)

11. Seriously, come for Miss Tina and stay for Debbie:

My beautiful Debbie!!

12. And Lorraine Schwartz is god’s gift to Instagram:

But we can’t, so we have to get our Lorraine Schwartz fix through Miss Tina.

14. Because Miss Tina ain’t evah afraid to crop someone out, friend or not:

15. And because Miss Tina has the baddest bad bitch captions: “When someone iis trying to sell you on some bulls___t”
