    13 Celebrities Who Overcame Hardships And Are Now ~Bulletproof~

    "This time, baby, I'll be bulletproof."

    Back in 2009, La Roux dropped their mega-hit "Bulletproof." I remember boppin' along to this song on my iPod Nano without a care in the world.

    "THIS TIME, BABY, I'LL BEEEEEEEE BULLEEEEETPROOOOOOF."

    Well, as y'all know, what is dead may never die, and like a phoenix from the ashes, this song has been reborn in the form of a TikTok challenge.

    However, this isn't a dance or couple-pranking challenge, but rather a way for celebs and common folk to comment on how they are now "bulletproof" because of the drama and adversity they had to overcome in the past.
