星 (xīng) is commonly used in everyday Chinese conversations to refer to stars, heavenly bodies, and star-shaped objects. For example, one might say 我们可以去看星星 (wǒmen kěyǐ qù kàn xīngxīng) meaning "we can go and look at the stars".
It can also be used to refer to celebrities, for example 他是一个名星 (tā shì yīgè míngxīng) meaning "he is a very famous star".
Finally, it can be used to refer to particles, bits, or weight marks. For example, 他把糖分成很多小星 (tā bǎ táng fēnchéng hěnduō xiǎo xīng) meaning "he divided the sugar into many small particles".
