Jodi Arias, popularly known for the 2013 murder of her boyfriend Travis Alexander, is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole in state prison. Little did she know, however, that not only would the murder cause her to become the poster girl for domestic abuse thanks to a video produced by rapper Kareem "Lefty" Williams about her, but she would gain newfound fame over it as well.
The revelation comes during a conversation obtained by Radar Online between Arias and Lefty that took place on Sunday, Jan. 10. The conversation starts off simple, with the two talking about her prison dinner.
"We had chicken fajitas here tonight. Really good," she says. "A big old pile of caramelized onions, some bell peppers, like, all the works."
She goes on to explain what her food schedule consists of during the week: "On the weekends they give us a hot dinner, on the week days it's like sandwiches. Nothing is very good."
The two turn their attention to a music video for Lefty's song "Jodi Ann Arias," which debuted on Phoenix New Times earlier this month. The video, with her as the subject matter, focuses on PTSD and domestic violence.
"So people have written me about the video," she begins. "So did you release it?"
"Yeah, I released it on [Monday]," Williams responds. "I've gotten a pretty good response. A lot of hate. A lotta, lotta hate."
"Oh, yeah, haters gonna hate," Arias replies.
"I think me and you are probably the most hated man and woman on Earth right now, honestly," Williams says.
"It's all good! If this is what it's like to be hated, keep hating," Arias says. "I've got so much love coming my direction, I can't even respond to it all," she asserts, according to Extra.
Aside from the video, the two touch upon what channels she can watch in there, including USA, BET and A&E. Arias, who was also excommunicated from the Mormon Church, says that there a few religious channels, including one from Brigham Young University, on top of a Catholic and Protestant channel she can watch.
The conversation soon turns back to the video, with Arias giving Lefty some encouragement about how to deal with their "haters" after learning that someone already made a parody of his video.
"You should be flattered," she tells him. "It doesn't matter how bad it is. You should be flattered that somebody took the time ...These people have no life or they're really in love with you."
