Do you know what stars actually are?

A star is a massive, luminous sphere of plasma held together by gravity, in more simple terms stars are hot bodies of glowing gas that start their life in Nebulae. (Nebulae= is made of dust, hydrogen and helium gas, and plasma.)
interresting Facts
It’s pretty amazing to think that our own Sun, located a mere 150 million km away is average example of all the stars in the Universe.
Mass = temperature = color

The color of stars can range from red to white to blue. Red is the coolest color; that’s a star with less than 3,500 Kelvin. Stars like our Sun are yellowish white and average around 6,000 Kelvin. The hottest stars are blue, which corresponds to surface temperatures above 12,000 Kelvin. So the temperature and color of a star are connected. Mass defines the temperature of a star. The more mass you have, the larger the star’s core is going to be.
