2:07 PM PT -- Katherine has released a statement to TMZ confirming she cancelled 8 interviews scheduled for today ... but says, "My decision to cancel the interviews was not made at A.J.'s request."

Katherine says she decided to pull out because she feared her relationship with A.J. will be viewed as a "celebrity status" thing ... instead of a real, legitimate connection ... and worries that the misconception could spell doom for the couple.

"I want it to be about me and him," Webb says ... adding, "He's a guy I can see myself having a real future with."

Katherine Webb has gone off the grid ... banning herself from speaking to ANY media outlets ... partly because her superstar QB boyfriend A.J. McCarron is upset that he's been overshadowed by Webb's hotness.

Of course, Webb -- Miss Alabama USA 2012 -- shot to instant fame Monday night, when ESPN announcer Brent Musburger pointed her out in the crowd and RAVED about how insanely attractive she is.

Since the game, Webb's gained more than 100k Twitter followers and has been getting hit up by media outlets from around the country -- including the "Today" show and various entertainment news shows.

But sources close to Webb tell us ... McCarron made it clear to her -- he's not happy that the media is ignoring his accomplishments on the field. We're told Webb is taking her relationship seriously and thinks the publicity could torpedo things with A.J.

In fact, we're told one major media outlet showed up to Webb's front door this morning looking to speak with Katherine ... but she turned them down. We're told she also backed out of several interviews that were already scheduled.

Sources connected to the situation tell TMZ ... Donald Trump -- who owns the Miss USA competition -- got word of Webb's self-imposed media blackout ... and decided to get involved.

We're told Trump talked her into appearing on the "Today" show -- but she won't budge when it comes to doing any other PR.

Sources close to A.J. tell us ... the QB has made it clear to friends he wants to keep his private life private. One source tells us A.J. isn't jealous of Katherine, but wants to keep the spotlight on his team and their accomplishments.

Lesson: NEVER compromise your self worth for another individual. This little boy needs to grow up and you are not his mother. Let his parents finish their job to teach him humility and respect!

LOL, I'm sorry but does AJ think he owns her or somthing? Katherine Webb is headed for big things, AJ will be a backup QB in the NFL at best. Get over yourself dude.

A.J. should know his girlfriend is a beauty queen, not a drama queen. She should make the most of this and from what I saw on one of the entertainment shows, she is--and it was refreshing to see her say that she took no offense to Brent's comments.

They probably won't be a couple too much longer. If Katherine Webb has any "genuine" ambition, she has to strike while the "IRON IS HOT"!!! There's no guarantee AJ McCarron will be successful as a professional football player. If he's having problems with the attention she's receiving now, IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE!!! Giving into a "CONTROL FREAK" NEVER WORKS!!! The girl needs a "SEPARATE" career not linked to AJ McCarron.

McCarron are you seriously upset with your GF? Hey kid you should get on your knees and thank God that she noticed you at all. If you weren't a QB she wouldn't give you the light of day. You look like a fifteen year old. Be grateful and she can be as famous as she wants. You aren't going to get anything better than that because you aren't going to matter much in the NFL.

Maybe she was really pissed when he snubbed her and greeted non-immediate family members before her. She said that's one quality she admired him for (ie, family-oriented) but it probably stung a little.

Give the whining College quaterback a pacifier and tell him to hit the bricks. She should not put off her career for him, he would kick her to the curb in a heartbeat if he thought he was gettin' something better.
