It makes sense that a star comedian like Tracy Morgan would have a way with words.

So, as he gears up to host Sunday's 2013 Billboard Music Awards, the funnyman says he chooses his terms wisely when describing how he feels about his hosting duties.

"Words take on meaning," he explained to PEOPLE on Wednesday. "If I say, 'I'm nervous,' then I'm going to be nervous. If I'm excited, then I can't wait for it to start. People who are nervous can't wait for it to be over. Nervousness is negative to me. Excitement is the way I like to use it."

No last laugh this time for Tracy Morgan.

After accusations that he delivered a homophobic rant at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium that even caused the venue's owners to distance themselves from what was said to an audience there last Friday, the 30 Rock actor, who plays the oafish Tracy Jordan on the NBC sitcom, has issued the following statement:

"I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community for my choice of words at my recent stand-up act in Nashville. I'm not a hateful person and don't condone any kind of violence against others," said Morgan, 42, reports

"While I am an equal opportunity jokester, and my friends know what is in my heart, even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."
