High mass stars are those with a mass greater than 3 solar masses or in other words three time more massive than our sun. Although these stars have more hydrogen fuel to consume the sequence of events is much faster. The hydrogen burning takes place at a high rate to maintain the pressures to counteract the gravitational attractive forces. This results in the stars attaining higher temperatures and appearing brighter than low mass stars. Go to www. death of a high mass star.
When a star uses all of its "fuel" the star expands rapidly then uses rest if its "fuel" the state it's in now is called a supernova. Then the star collapses in on itself and keeps doing that then it gets so small and dense and firms a black hole.
