Amy Winehouse

Singer Gets Second Billing

... On Her GRAVESTONE

9/21/2012 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921_amy_winehouse_SplashAmy Winehouse's gravestone has been unveiled in London ... and even though she was a worldwide superstar, she didn't get top billing on her final marquee.

Amy is buried alongside her grandmother Cynthia Levy, who passed away 5 years before the 27-year-old singer ... and the two share a gravestone, with Cynthia's name on top. 

The stone reads, "In loving memory of Cynthia Levy ... and her beloved granddaughter Amy Jade Winehouse."

The inscription continues, "Forever in the hearts of their devoted family."

Winehouse died on July 23, 2011 after a hardcore alcohol binge.

How can you say hardcore alcohol binge? She stayed abstinent from alcohol for a long time, decided to drink again, and her heart gave out. Not really a "hardcore drinking binge"

Just goes to show you when you are a crack whore, no one ever gives a sh!t about you regardless of being alive or dead. Good riddence to a POS.

Being buried next to your grandmother is a lovely sentiment. Gravestones are not being famous and top billing.

Absolutely beautiful headstone!
This is a family headstone, nothing wrong with the order. It's obvious that BOTH women were deeply loved by their family.

And I'm sure Amy would have wanted it that way. I know I would. I miss my Nana. :*(

A non story. A family buried two people that they loved very dearly. One died first and was much older. The family didn't care that one acquired fame as a singer - they loved them both. As is the tradition in most cultures, the oldest got the place of honor.
.
For some reason, TMZ think is this is a story. As usual, they are wrong.

I don't think Amy carea about top billing right now. Besides Granny was there first.

Family comes before fame. I wouldn't expect TMZ to grasp that concept, though.

Someone needs to tell this family it is a grave stone, not a birthday card. Everyone in the family does not need to sign it.

This is a family stone. The grandmother died first, so maybe they will list the family members in order of death.
