Lady Gaga is no stranger to social media, so it's no surprise that she's gone and taken the leap into the wild, wondrously fleeting world of Snapchat.

Hours before Mother Monster takes to the turf to perform "The Star Spangled Banner" in front of the whole world (no pressure or whatever), the Fame Monster pop princess announced that she would be documenting her #SB50 journey on the split-second photo sharing service — and Little Monsters have been getting a whole lot of sneak peeks of Gaga's forthcoming patriotic lewk between Snapchat and Instagram.

Check out some Instagrams and Snapchat screenshots below, and we'll see you at kickoff later this evening. Good luck, Gaga!
