Do you mean ' primadonna'? According to Webster's Dictionary... Primadonna : : The principal woman singer , as in an opera. Or : A temperamental or arrogant person
I cannot find Pre-Madonna in the dictionary. Maybe its slang for someone who was around before Madonna. It will be interesting to view other answers.Source(s): Webster's New World Dictionary.

I think you mean a 'Prima Donna' lol
I'm not exactly sure of the literal translation, but it's an expression used to describe a person who is vain, prissy and very demanding of everybody attention! This person needs all the people around them, not only to give them all the attention, ALL the time, but also expects everyone to do what they say and give them anything they want.
Famous Prima Donna's:
Almost ALL supermodels.

Given Madonna's age, and the time that has elapsed since she was first "discovered," it (the phrase "pre-Madonna") is used to represent A LOT of time. Pre-Madonna era means the Jurassic period.
(It just means before Madonna was famous. Gosh!)
Or Maybe you meant "Prima Donna". In Modern Context, that just means someone who acts very haughtily.

As you spelled it, it is someone before the era of 1983, black lace gloves and silver crucifixes
Means first lady, or more to the point those nitpicky twits that think because they have some modicum of talent they should be given only the damn green m&ms in the bowl in the dressing rooms when they are on tour. Someone somewhere has to specifically sort that out causing more money to be spent to satisfiy their outrageous demands.
Also used in conjunction with Opera Sopranos and Ballerinas

The term is "prima donna" means essentially, "first lady" although it is seldom used for the wife of a president. The term became common in opera when a woman (usually a soprano) became celebrated not only for the quality of her voice, but also frequently for her vanity (Maria Callas was one example). The term then gradually became extended to most any "star" set apart for her....or even HIS special position. When I was a radio announcer, the best known, (and possibly the most vain) fellow employee who could do no wrong from management's point of view, was known by the rest of us as a prima donna.

It is actually ´prima donna´and comes from the Opera Circles, where there is often an issue as to whom is more VIP.
It's italian: Prima - First, Donna - Lady. By now it is used for all genders.

It refers to female pop stars before Madonna. :)
Acutally it is prima donna. Italian for first or leading lady. It is the leading female star of an opera. But it has come to mean someone who believe's that because of stardom, everyone else exists only to provide service, that the usual rules of etiquette and behavior only applies to others and that the center of the universe is only this one exalted personage.

Prima donna is the term; it has nothing to do with either virgins who had babies or female pop stars.
A prima donna is the leading woman soloist in an opera company, and is used to describe someone who is a temperamental and conceited person.
