You could put it inside a JLabel.  Then you can include HTML.

JLabel coloredString = new JLabel("<HTML><BODY><FONT COLOR='#FF0000'>" + myString + "</FONT></BODY></HTML>");

You could also make it a borderless button and set the foreground color:

  String myString = new String("whatever");
  JButton myButton = new JButton(myString);
  myButton.setBorderPainted(false);
  myButton.setForeground(Color.black);

Hi! You can set foreground for ANY JComponent. So, you can set foreground for your JLabel:

JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello!");
label.setForeground (Color.RED);
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, label);

Good luck!
