La Roux

Album La Roux

This song could be about whatever you want it to be! In an interview with BBC Newbeat, Le Roux Singer Elly Jackson said: “For me Bulletproof is just about looking at a situation that’s usually a reoccurring one. It could be to do with anything in your life, whatever you want it to be about. I don’t like being specific about what my tracks are about to me because its not really about that. It serves its purpose for me and once you put it out into the public. It then becomes what anyone wants it to be about. But it’s just vaguely about, realizing there’s a reoccurring situation in your life, something which keeps happening to you or keeps knocking you back. Something that you can’t quite get over. It’s about going to yourself, ‘No, I’m not going to do this to myself again because it’s not good for me and I’m going to be bulletproof.”
