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.

He should only get mad if it goes to her head & she runs with it. Frankly, I think all of this is a joke. Men act like she's the last woman left on earth. I've seen a lot better. Wonder what you all would say if you saw her without an inch of makeup on her face. Oh I forgot, it's about her killer body.

Hey, SCUZZBAG, A.J. McCarron, I'm Canadian, I love all things SPORTS. I was into all things Canadian plus the NFL. I wasn't into college football until your girlfriend was mentioned and I took an interest. What's WRONG, A.J. McCarron, she got more publicity then you so you got all p.i.ss.y? I don't care what she says, and if she decided this all on her own, you better recognize that she's all about you, not her. Don't like what's happening, DON"T DATE A BEAUTY CONTESTANT.

What does a pretty, smart girl like Katherine Webb expect when she is dating a dumb Alabama hick like A.J. McCarron?

Welcome to being subservient to your low-class partner.

Time to move on. This is the last guy you should be dating.

Folks, just like in high school, the freakin stud QBs really do tend to get the hottest looking chicks. It must be a instinctual caveman thing with women or something. Maybe they just like six pack abs and the smell of football players after a game. Who knows?

Check out this picture of A.J. with Katherine. You know that he's got this picture in his wallet and he goes around showing all of his friends .... "look at the hot babe I got dudes! ... she's all mine"

Wow. Not only does he look like a complete dork but he’s also an insecure loser. She needs to dump his butt because she could do so much better than a jerk who thinks everything should be about HIM. Hope she comes to her senses soon and finds a real man instead of this whiny jackass.

I don't blame him - some rich a-hole could sweep her off her feet. PS - TMZ users - look into Ghostery. There are at least a dozen tracking bugs on this site alone.

You won a College Bowl game against an obviously inferior team. Stop acting like anyone cares about you and get out of the way so we check out your chick. AJ is the definition of C-Blocker....

What is MORE Offensive    

BS!!! The only thing AJ wants to keep private is any information about his mom's brother Dustin Alton Kent who is charged with 7 counts of child molestation, rape, incest & sodomy! REPORT on that and while you are at it find out who is paying for the unemployed trailer renter's expensive attorney's legal fees & bail!!! Someone wants to keep that dirty secret in the closet!!!

He obviously isn't a guy worth keeping if he is bothered by it. A real keeper is supporting and encouraging.
