Mom Covers 'All About That Bass' With a Twist

Mom covers 'All About That Bass," makes it an ode to breastfeeding

If you thought the Holderness family's cover of Meghan Trainor's "All About that Bass" was the most original one you've heard yet, a new day brings a new cover, so perk up your ears. Musician Lori Burke appears to be giving the Holderness fam a run for their money — or, at the very least, she's definitely getting people to talk (though it's not all praise).

The mom of two recently shared her controversial cover on YouTube, which is quickly going viral for its very different take on the popular single. Because instead of being an ode to bodies of all shapes and sizes, this cover is an ode to breastfeeding and its many wonders. In the 2:30-minute clip, Burke whips out her guitar and croons not about bringing booty back, but about bringing boobies back.

Yes, folks: We've officially heard it all.

While a good deal of Burke's song is genuinely supportive, with lines like "I got your back, mama" and other encouraging words about not giving up when breastfeeding gets hard, there's one line in particular that's just not sitting well with a lot of moms out there. And it goes something like this: "You know I'm all about that breast, 'bout that breast — no bottle."

Oof. As anyone who's remotely aware of the fiercely tense breast/bottle debate knows that those are some fightin' words!

But as Burke shared with the Eerie Reader, she's not at all judging other moms for their decision to bottle-feed.

"I have two children: 6 and 8 years old," explained Burke. "I breastfed both, but also bottle-fed, pumped, used formula — I did it all. So I'm not trying to isolate moms who choose not to. I support all mothers and know that we all have to do what is best for our children and ourselves. Breastfeeding is very stressful as a new mom. But it is the healthiest and least expensive way to feed your newborn, not to mention the bonding, immunities and good things you pass on to your infant."

The Pennsylvania mom also shared that while the Holderness family's recent parody was actually her inspiration for writing the song, the breastfeeding spin came to her suddenly one day while getting her kids ready for school.

Now, without further adieu, here's Burke's cover.

What do you think of her take?
