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.

Relationships should be about supporting each other. But, he's still young and immature. He is obviously not feeling very secure right now with all the attention she's getting. So his immaturity is coming out as jealousy. When you date a beautiful person (man or woman) you better be secure enough to handle all the attention they will get. I see no reason not to let her have her 15 mins of fame.

I guess it's better she found out now, although she doesn't seem to realize it yet. This boy, not a man, a boy, she's messing with will always be jealous of her, no matter what she does. Why should the focus be on him and his team and not on her and her accomplishments? She is, after all, the current Miss Alabama. The focus should equally be on her throughout their relationship, too. And he should take this current event with a sense of humor and support her time in the spotlight. I'm sorry she feels the need to shut down her own career and moment of publicity in order to make him feel more important. She sees a future with an immature, selfish boy like this? Wake up, woman.

What a bunch of bull. He dates a Miss Alabama, then doesn't want anyone to pay attention to her cos it will detract from his team?!?!? Why do women always have to put themselves last to please a man. He won't be able to play football forever. Wouldn't it be nice if she had her own career and money to suppliment their income and make a better life for both of them and their family?

Like they might say in the South ...

I bet A.J. just wants to keep the dogs in the neighborhood out of his yard. All this publicity for Katherine kind of makes her like a bitch dog in heat .... male dogs will come from miles around in order to sniff around a bit. A.J. is the QB stud for the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide you know. Katherine is his girl dammit!
