Thanks to Brent Musburger‘s pacemaker rocketing out of his penis during the BCS Championship, Katherine Webb became an instant Internet sensation which apparently pissed off her boyfriend, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, who thinks everyone should be talking about how awesome his football team is and nothing else. NOTHING ELSE! I’m sorry, baby, coach’s been riding me and keeps giving me these pills… TMZ reports:
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.
You’re probably thinking, yeesh, the only thing that could make this thing worse is a forced statement that makes you think he hit her, so here’s a forced statement that makes you think he hit her:
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.”
“Look, baby, I know you’re super beautiful and your entire career is based on people admiring your looks, so this was a huge moment for you, I get it. But I throw a ball down a field. Do you see how important that is? You do? Oh thank god. For a minute there I thought we’d have to drive to Steubenville and – ha – you don’t want to know. Watch a movie?”
